Just a few more samples using the Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die...
The red and light blue flowers were stamped with Archival Ink, then saturated with water, crumpled and allowed to air dry. The purple flower was done the same way, then dipped in UTEE. The yellow flower was cut from card stock and the edges were inked with Distress Ink. And finally, the red/orange stick pin flower was made with grungepaper covered with music paper, inked with Distress Inks and covered with Rock Candy Stickles for a little shimmer.
The awesome and lovely Miss Dyan Reaveley makes art journaling look so very easy...*sigh*...I think I need a lot more practice! I had a lovely idea spinning around in my head to use the tattered florals die as a mask to create a cool journal page (sorry...I meant to take more photos of the progress). My colors didn't quite blend as well as Dyan's. I'm thinking I needed more water....and talent! Well...hopefully I can try again another time...but for now, here's the mess I made...trust me, I sprayed EVERYWHERE! :-)
Tim Holtz has issued a challenge...the Tattered Floral Challenge! I have so many ideas I want to try...I love that Tim did this! So...all I need is some free time to play and create...yep, that's all I need. I had a short time earlier today, so I created this card using the die as a stamp. Hopefully, I'll have more to share soon! Join me...take the challenge!!
