At the beginning of March, Tim announced a challenge to use his gorgeous tattered floral die and create something - anything - to be in with a chance of winning $100 worth of Tim goodies. Well, it would be rude not to enter, right?! I love the tattered floral die.... so, at last I had a chance to have a play. (You have until March 22nd to enter) Thanks, Tim!
I painted the petals with Paperartsy Fresco paint in Eggplant, watered down and blotting the canvas to lighten the colour so the text showed through. Did the same for the big die, using Limelight Fresco paint so they appear as leaves.
Stuck the green leaves to a die cut in chipboard I found in my stash (handy, not having used it before!) The second (not shown in this pic) I used Toad Hall so it was darker, and would show up between these leaves. (see first picture) having stamped it with the criss cross background from Tim's Mixed Media set (stamped in pine tree green archival)
For the tag, I used the background stamp again, with the purple versafine pad, having painted the tag with watered down Eggplant again. Rolled the stamp randomly, some of them sideways for variation.
The middle of the flower is a purpley glass bead from my stash - I bought a pack of these years (literally!) ago, and have never used one of them! It fitted perfectly. It was meant to be, obviously!
Finished with some purpley ribbons.
I really had fun with this, am now off to link it up.
Good luck if you have a go too.
