Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Challenge......
Tattered Floral die is one of my favorites from Tim Holtz.
This project took me about two weeks to create. I started by running the die through my Big Shot what felt like 8 zillion times, but was probably more like 12-14 times. I cut the petals out of grunge paper. I then base coated the petals on each side in an ivory acrylic paint. After that was done, I added a crackle medium and then a top coat in each of the four colors - light pink, coral, blue and purple. When that dried I turned each of the petals over and did the same thing. Then I took out my glue gun and just started manipulating the grunge paper into the flower shape I wanted. I also took some white stamens I purchased from Michael's (baking aisle) and dipped the tips of these stamens in glue and then in yellow flower soft. After that dried, I painted the stems of the stamens light green.
Tattered Leaves die out of velvet material taken from some Christmas poinsettias I purchased on sale at the end of the season. These leaves were ivory in color, but I used Peeled Paint Distress Stain to color them green.
I purchased the basket at Hobby Lobby for $4 and painted it with an off white acrylic paint. The basket filler is paper shred from the dollar tree. It was bright yellow, but I used a bleach and water solution to bleach it to an off white.
Whew! I think that is it. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment. I have a video describing this project on my YouTube channel HERE. The basket was hard to photograph and you might get a better view of it on the video.
