For the new Scrapy Land Challenge #21, I decided to create a tag around a "flower" watercolor image I created using Ken Oliver's Color Bursts.
I had just received my set of Color Bursts and started playing around with these fun products. The results of my very first attempt was the above impressionist flower. I was even using a piece of scrap watercolor paper....just to see what happened. I know I will probably never create another blob of colors that remind me of a flower, but I know I'll keep trying :-). Hopefully you can see the "flower" too.
The dies used in this project are:
Elizabeth Craft Designs: Tags and More 3 - Leaves
Sue Wilson Designs: Finishing Touches - Delicate Fronds
Sue Wilson Designs: Dandelion Clocks
Taylored Expressions: Banner Stacklets 2
Cheery Lynn Designs: Mini Flourish one
Penny Black: Doodles
Heartfelt Creations: Blazing Poppy die
(If the items aren't showing up in the store, they may be out of stock. So be sure to check back often.)
I die cut the tag using the Elizabeth Craft Designs die out of kraft paper and the leaves inserts out of green cardstock that was dry embossed using a Crafters Companion embossing folder (Leaf Vein).
The handmade flowers are from a rubber stamp by Heartfelt Creations (Blazing Poppy Petals), are colored with Copic markers, and then die cut using the Blazing Poppy die. I added Black Ice glitter to the centers of each flower as well as a gem once each of these were formed and glued together. The greenery was die cut using the Sue Wilson Designs dies and the Cheery Lynn die. My sentiment was from Penny Black and the black matting behind the watercolor "flower" was die cut using the Taylored Expressions banner die.
I also hand died a piece of seam binding ribbon using the same Copic colors that were used to color the flower formed flowers.
