Yep that's another two weeks gone by, and it's time for another challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On. My lovely teamie Gabrielle has set the theme of Self Propelled Flowers, which means she want's to see butterflies, flowers and locomotion/movement of some sort. It also needs to be on a tag, and using at least one real stamp. Phew got it, well here's mine...
I must admit this didn't come easily, and the big blue filing cabinet under the desk (marked rubbish) is groaning a little. Whoever said that there are no mistakes in craft, just happy accidents really needs to take a look in my bin!
But with the spirit that made Britain great I soldiered on - stubborn oh yes I will NOT be beaten by a challenge lol.
Sooo, base tag inked with dye inks then overstamped with The Paper Company flower and butterfly stamp.
This took care of the flowers and butterflies, for the movement I stamped the Paper Artsy flying clock onto the Metal on Card and rubbed some Inca Gold over the top and attached with a ribbon.
Back to the flowers, many years ago I ordered some dried flowers from Joanna Sheen, and they are still as lovely now, so on they went. Finally the acetate butterflies were given a good stickling with the old Ice Stickles. Unfortunately it is so cold now in the conservatory that it decided not to dry.... ever! Their antennae are little beaded flowers on stems - get it self propelled flowers - mission accomplished!
Although a pain to start with, I really enjoyed this once I got going, and I had half an idea of what I wanted to do.
Please pop over to TIO to check out the other fabulous examples from the dream team, then please join in.
Thanks very much for looking x
