Red and Black meets CCC13

Well what we have here is another combo challenge for Gingersnap Creations Red and Black and Linda's CCC week 13 Grungepaper Flowers! Obviously the red and black are self explanatory! Now the grungepaper flowers were cut from Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals. I added two way adhesive paper and then my tissue paper. About the tissue paper. The one with the writing on it, was gift tissue paper that my DH used for our Anniversary in March! When it first came off the die, I was very disappointed in it's appearance. You could hardly see the writing. Once I inked it with the red, it stood out just perfectly! The next tissue grungepaper flower was just plain red tissue and I crinkled it prior to adhering to the adhesive paper and ran black ink across the top. The canvas board was stamped using another technique out of the Compendium of Curiosities and then inked with black and red! Now the beautiful center piece is a romantic stamp from Scrolls Work and I could not wait to use Joan and John!! They were just screaming out to me to use them in the frame. BTW, the frame is another new not released Sizzix die! Is that image not perfect for the frame? I also did a Cuttlebug Highlight technique on the frame from the Technique Junkies Newsletter!

It took me so long to arrange everything and I am not sure if I like the layout! The frame, image, flowers were done yesterday, but I could not for the life of me figure out what was the next step! I realize I could have used just one flower, but I just had to display them all! Thanks again so much for stopping by and having a little visit!
