I'm back again today to show you my sample for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. This week we want you to show us flourishes. Since I was trying to get all my projects finished before we left Friday morning for a few days in Key West, I opted to make a simple tag for the flourish challenge. I used the Tim Holtz Flourish mask on a manilla tag and misted it with a mixture of Vintage Photo distress ink, Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls and water. The tag and sentiment frame were cut with the Tim Holtz tag die. The shabby flower was made with tea dyed crinoline and tulle cut with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. Everything here is in vintage photo tones except a bit of misted stamping with Weathered Wood distress ink and the Flights of Fancy set. The sentiment is from the Mini Classics set. Plus I stamped the sentiment with Weathered Wood and used it to dye my crinkled seam binding.
Hope you will play along with us this week. Check out the challenge blog Simon Says Stamp and Show for some amazing inspiration by the rest of the design team. And every week, our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp has a $50 shopping spree to gave to a random winner. Can't wait to see what you make for the Flourish challenge!
Don't forget, here and here are two of my tutorials for making flowers from crinoline. I have crinoline available in my Etsy store here. Thanks so much for stopping by and for any comment you care to leave!
