Playing Tag!

Hope you aren't getting bored with these Create and Craft samples I made for Creative Expressions but here is another one!

This one kind of just fell together! I had some left over old book page collaged card and I ran it through my Cuttlebug in the Couture Creations Without a Lock Embossing Folder. I then coloured it with a mix of inks and the Cosmic Shimmer watercolours and then highlighted parts of it with some metallic Acrylic paint.

The flower was one of the Heartfelt Creations Posey Patch Flowers set stamps, stamped onto a copper Walnut Hollow Metal Square and textured with the script from the Umount Texture A5 Stamp Plate.

I then cut it out and molded it into shape.

Added a few beads for the centre. Now you have seen the metal leaves before in the Plum Twist Home Decor project. These are fab! As I've said before they are bendable, but I've left them flat for this project, only adding touches of metallic acrylic paint to blend the colour to match the piece more. I've also used some of the Silky Crush ribbon - another stash must have as it is so versatile!

Right, still on commissions today, deadlines getting ever closer as always.

Have a fab Wednesday.
