Day 7 of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas - Tattered Florals and Sticky Back Canvas
If you haven't made the time to go try out the technique seen in the video from Day 6, what are you waiting for? It's simply too cool for words!
I cut up 3 daisies and 2 small flowers then inked the sticky back canvas with Butterscotch and Terra Cotta Color Wash and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist (homemade). The petals were edged with Rusty Hinge. The leaves are Pesto and Lettuce Color Wash and a mixture of Kiwi and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist (homemade). Peeled Paint is on the edges of the leaves.
Of course I HAD to make a Wendy rose (3 of Wendy's rose stamps and one flower from Tim's die for the bottom layer). Since color wash isn't made in the colors used above I improvised by smearing the pads on my craft sheet, misting with water and swirling my pieces of sticky back canvas in them until I was happy with the colors. The color was very mottled which I really, really loved. I used the same colors as above for the petals while the leaves were treated to a wash of Bundled Sage, Antique Paper, Tea Dye and Kiwi with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls.
Seeing as how I was making the rose, I knew it could be done just using the sbc. Okay, too much white showing and not holding the curl well. Drats! I ended up taking it apart and adhering the pieces to grungepaper. A chore and now the sbc doesn't stick as nicely. Sigh. Thanks to my trusty glue gun I was able to make all this work out. I added a 'Love' word stick and small silver key to my Martha Stewart silk ribbons at the top.
