Spring Flower Caddy with Kathi

Kathi here to share with you a fun spring flower caddy. The paper line I used is "Windsong", a very soft elegant paper line. I used a 7 piece flower die from China. all the flowers I distressed the edges with two of the 2017 Powderpuff Chalking inks.

This is one side of the flower caddy. The caddy was painted black then I painted one side at a time with Elmer's glue. I let it get to a tacking stage them painted a white acrylic paint over the Elmer's glue, I let it dry. As it dries it crackled.

I completed each side one side at a time letting each layer dry before moving on to the next side.  A white Venice lace was hot glued to one of the long sides then a black dangle lace was placed over the white lace. I placed three handmade flowers to the upper left of the side of the caddy.

This is one of the short sides looking at the crackle technique  that was done on all three sides.

Close up of the soft flowers. The flowers are cut from the Windsong Paper Pack. The edges were distressed with Terra Cotta and Slate PowderPuff Chalk Inks. Then, all the flowers edges had a glue placed on each layer of the flowers then dipped in clear glitter.
