My papercrafting style changes depending on the materials I use (at least I think it does). I love cute and fun, and I love vintage and my Tim Holtz products! I consider the card I made for this challenge to fall in the latter. I used the Tattered Floral Die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz to make the pretty tissue and tulle flower on this card. As you may have guessed, using this die is a requirement for the challenge. :)
To make the flower, I cut 2 of the largest flower and 4 of the medium flower. The tissue I used is called "Terminology" by Tim Holtz Idea-ology. It cut very easily with the die - it has a waxy texture so it doesn't rip easily! I colored the flower cuts with colored misting spray and while wet, crinkled them up. Once dry, I unfolded the cuts, then layered them on top of each other (the largest flower cuts on the bottom). I also layered in some tulle to give the flower more dimension and added distress ink and liquid pearls to the edges, tissue leaves, and a pretty button to the center.
The friendship sentiment is a stamp by Tim Holtz (Heartfelt collection) and the pretty ribbon is from Stampin' Up!.
I have some news I really wish I could share too! All I can say at this point is that I will be guest designing for a truly awesome scrapbooking company in the near future. I am beyond excited!!!!
That's it from me for now. Hope your day was/is awesome! :)
