Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! For this week's challenge, Anna-Karin suggested a challenge where we make our own flowers. May got to thinking and came up with the idea that we make some project element from scratch. Something oh so very homemade? It could be an embellishment with layers, a rosette, a flower or perhaps you build something or other wise craft a piece by starting with little more than simple paper or other raw materials. What will you make from scratch?
I was inspired to create a homemade flower to embellish a tag (or three ;):
I enjoy making my own die cut flowers especially roses made using the Tattered Pinecone die as well as a homemade heart:
I was having so much fun, I couldn't stop there and created two more tags embellishing with a homemade heart and PEDIMENTS embellishment:
For added interest and design, I applied crackle paint along with TEA DYE ink to the die cut pediments, hearts:
and butterfly embellishment:
Each tag features a different stamped sentiment from the SIMPLE SAYINGS stamp set:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
