Embellishment Pile-up! Who Doesn't Want To?
Yesterday's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 204 called for us to layer our embellishments. I chose to make a flower out of a silk hydrangea I bought at Hobby Lobby to take apart and put on cards. I have had all the blossoms in a drawer for a long time, and decided to use some of them today. My background paper is by Basic Grey, I believe, although it was in a pile of scraps and I don't really remember! The ribbon is from the last bit of Chocolate Chip Satin that Stampin' Up! sold awhile back. I love this ribbon and am looking for a replacement!
My tag is from the office supply store. I stamped it with Stampin' Up!'s Old World Map (retired) and then used a sentiment from Keep My Lamp Burning (Our Daily Bread designs). SCS Limited Supply Challenge 206 was to use a sentiment as your focal point and only stamp. Martha Stewart helped me punch my branches and the Fleur de lis is from my chipboard stash. I inked it up with Versacolor Umber. It repeats a design in the background of the tag. A little hardware in the center of the flower (also from my stash - unknown vendor!) and my embellishments are all piled up!
