Flower Girl Tag

English / Italiano

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!

 

This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “The Great Outdoors” and we are showcasing Paper Artsy Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used.
For this week’s challenge I wanted to create a fun flowery tag!

I started with the background of my Tag, with a spatula I added randomly a bit of Gesso. I let it completely dry then, I added a layer of distress oxide with the help of a watercolor brush. I let it completely dry before adding more layers.
When I was satisfied with the background, I used Paper Artsy rubber stamp and distress oxide to add texture in the background.

I again let the background dry completely. It is important that your layers are well dry before adding more texture or even more colors — especially if you are working with distress oxide. As I was waiting I die cut a couple of wildflowers with the Sizzix die. I LOVE these flowers!

I used distress oxide to add a bit of color to these flowers. I used a watercolor brush and worked again on layers. When the flowers where ready I used a black and white acrylic pen to add some little details.

Finally I glued down everything to my Tag. I added first a small piece of cheesecloth, then the darker flowers, then ballerina and lastly the brighter flower. I wanted to give the illusion she was dancing in the flowers.

The sentiment is from one of my favorite new release from Tim Holtz Idea-ology CLIPPINGS Stickers Paperie and I think it fits perfectly.

I currently feel like this smiling little girl in her pretties dress. Among flowers. Among smiles. Because I dreamed beautiful dreams, and they became true.
So I hope you all can follow and reach your dreams, and if this does not happen, then just keep on dreaming. You will get there, trust me.

🙂
