I have been making flowers!
The flowers were cut from Tim Holtz alterations tattered florals die from Sizzix. (And I had to buy a Big Shot to use it as I only had the original red sizzix and I swore I would never need/want another die cutting machine ever!)
The pale flower is tissue paper, the pinky ones are some old papers I didn't really like sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer sprays and the darkest flowers are leather.
The background is another paper, metal, paint and inked to within an inch of its life. (I was always 'too scared' to layer to much on my backgrounds but now I'm having such fun putting on loads!!!)
The metal plaque is a sizzix embossing folder whiched I stamped with on of Tims stamps in black archival.
I have made so many flowers they are stuck up all around my craft studio (or 'making room' as my Grandson calls it). Well it would be rude not to use the die as much as possible wouldn't it!
