Embrace Imperfection 50

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 23, 2014 @ 9:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week, DT member Anna-Karin challenges us to be transparent. Will you use vellum? Perhaps share all the details of your project leaving no secrets unseen? Add a layer of frost film or use mediums that are not opaque? The choice is yours! Can't wait to see what you create!

I was inspired to create a project featuring a transparent Tattered Floral. When it was completed, it sort of looked like a wintery scene don't you think?
To create the die cut flower, I combined fun frost film, modeling film and Broken China Distress Ink. Peeking out from under the blossom are sprigs of die cut flowers and fun art parts leaves:
For the background, I stamped and inked a piece of French Industrial Paper using various stamps and Distress inks then added texture using the Tim Holtz Bubble Stencil. Once the background was created, I adhered a crackle finished Window
Thank you for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
