Fleur De Li's - Passion

After sitting at my craft desk for many hours with a crafting block and panicking that I'd lost my MoJo this is what I came up with. It was the punch that inspired me, I just punched out the shape from a piece of black card and slowly I started to build up the image of what I wanted.
Panic over...


I punched four more Fleur De Li's from black card stock and arranged them onto a square of red card stock I used a black button and tied red and black ribbon and knotted it at the front of the button.
I added black diamond stickles glitter glue to accent the shapes then matted and layered onto a piece of black card to form a frame.




Attention to detail; the punched red shapes that popped out of the card have been sponged with black ink and added above the punched Fleur De Li's holes to mirror the image, the black pearls were added to the red sponged shapes.
If you are wondering where the black pearls came from well I have to admit to cheating, I only had normal pearl colours but used a permanent black marker to colour them.
