This week the design team is showing more projects using our current Spring challenge theme. We've added ribbons to our projects for a little extra oomph. At the end of the week Senior DT Jamie and Brenda, our very first Guest Designer will introduce our April sketch challenge. Yay!
I made a quick tag using our new Tim Holtz dies: Tag & Bookplates and Tattered Florals, and Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Springtime".
This really was a quick project - it took just about 2 hours, which is record time for me! The flower was made by cutting the Tattered Floral shapes twice and offsetting each size so the space between the petals doesn't show. I cut the largest flower down by about a half-inch. The petals are rounded with the awesome Empressor tool. To the edges I randomly added a combination of Star Dust and Crystal Stickles with my fingertip.
The little fairy tag was pulled from the Once Upon A Springtime "Tags" die-cut 12x12 page - loads of cool embellishments on that sheet! I cut an extra wing and added a little Stickles to the wing, crown and sceptre for a little bling.
