Last minute I know, but I really wanted to play along with the Tim Holtz April Tag 2014 Challenge!!
I just LOVE the Shabby Chic look and I LOVE to make Flowers!! Plus, I had gotten the New Tim Holtz Die at 40% off ($11.99 PLUS FREE SHIPPING!! There is another SALE going on now at Joann's too if you'd like to pick any of his new dies up!!)
I have been wanting to use it so today was my chance!! =)
I used Grunge Paper to die cut the Die and then I also cut it out of some Tim Holtz Merriment Paper, Mirrored Paper and some of his Crystal Effects Paper!! I adhered the Crystal Effects Paper ontop of the Cardstock to give it a really neat shimmer and frosty feel!! Its almost like velvet to the touch!! OHLALALA!! I then used some Distress Paint in EverGreen Bough to color the entire outlibe shape of the Die and then I inked the edges using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink!! I used Iced Spruce Distress Paint to paint over the Tag background and the I used the same Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to ink over the entire Tag Base!! I distressed the Tag Edges with my Scissors and then flicked it with some Perfect Pearls that I mixed with Water for a FUN Water Mark Texture, Plus some Pretty Shimmer!! =) I then die cut the Sizzix Tim Holtz Pine Cone Die 4 times to make four BEAUTIFUL Rolled Flowers!! I LOVE making these!! I used some paper that I inked with Barn Door, Iced Spruce and Lemonade Distress Inks and then I took the Distress Paints in Barn Door and Iced Spruce and dotted it around the entire Die Cut just for some added texture!! I inked it once dry with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then I rolled them into flowers!! Once they were glued together I then took my Glue Pen and added some Glue just to the tips of the Flower Petals and then dipped them into the Distress Rock Candy Glitter!! I LOVE how Pretty this makes them!! =) I added some leaves that I cut from the Glassine Paper and then I added some Vintage Lace and added my flowers!! I LOVE the way it came together!!
