This one was made from a selection of x-cut botanical punches, with inked edges, stuck onto a die cut hoop. A few wire spirals made from garden wire are stuck in there too.
This one was a distress ink background (my second attempt - made a complete botch first time). We stamped with water and blotted to create a white shadow and then stamped with ink on top. You can't really see the effect in this photo though.
