So I have had a lovely afternoon creating this tag with lots of my favourite textures, inks and elements, along with some new Tim Holtz embellishments which arrived while I was away.
Then it was a case of having fun embellishing! There is some hessian and more scrim layered at the bottom, some lovely Tim Holtz Ephemera labels, Prima metal and lace and of course my handmade flowers. I even had a go at adhering some micro beads ...
All the flowers have been made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (my all time favourite). The rolled rose was edged with Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord Distress Inks before being spritzed, scrunched and then created.
Vintage Photo Distress ink edged this one before being spritzed and scrunched.
And of course there are always the little ones which get tucked in.
And the reason for focusing on the flowers is that the Monday Simon Says Stamp Challenge is all about handmade flowers this week. I have been meaning to join in with the Monday challenge for a long time, but this seems like a good challenge to start with given my love of handmade flowers!
I decided that this little quote was quite appropriate given that I seem to have found myself again ......
As always thank you for joining me and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
