Blooming Flower

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 “Summer Garden” and we are featuring  Paper Artsy Brand!
I choose the Hot Pick 1301 as main stamp on my tag- I absolutely love this stamp set, and I recommend you to head over Simon Says Stamp and check out all the amazing stamps by Paper Arsty!

The combination of hot pink and hot yellow is definitely one of my favorite, especially when it comes to Dylusions Paint.

I covered the entire #8 Manila Tag with Dylusions Paint Bubblegum Pink and Lemon Zest using my fingers and I let the color blend to create this wonderful peach-ish color. I also blended in some white gesso and then set aside to dry.
When it was dry, I glued down some pieces of Tissue Wrap Paper by Tim Holtz.


I stamped the background with the Paper Artsy stamp and archival ink and then to create some more interest and texture I used a mini stencil by Tim Holtz and added through it Embossing Paste by Wendi Vecchi the translucent one. I let it dry and then used Distress Paint Antiqued Bronze to highlight the peeks of the paste.
I again set aside to dry meanwhile I stamped again the Paper Artsy stamp over another piece of manila. I fussy cut the butterfly and three flowers and colored them the same way I did with the background.


I darkened up the edges of the tag and stitched all around the tag. It was not an easy task because I wasn’t planning the stitching so I put the embossing paste around the corners! LOL.
I made my own sentiment by mix and matching two different stickers by Tim Holtz. Since the theme was “Summer Garden” I thought of making a Cheerful tag wishing everyone a day full of blooming flowers!

    Wow! The mix of pink and yellow is amazing! It’s a shame to admit I have never tried to combine this colors… The result is awesome and the orange received from mixing is just like another color used. I love that! The black details calm down the vibrant background so perfectly. Great project! Hugs, Marzena
