Hi everyone HAPPY IRS day if you are here in the US (LOL - GRUMBLE GRUMBLE) Here is a post that will help you get over those tax day blues!
I'm sharing with you a simple tutorial for creating these beautiful Shabby Flowers using Marion Smith Designs Rose Petal Die (the one in the center of the photo below). Oh and BTW - the Bloom tools are shipping to retailers now - so exciting I hope you got one. I used embossing powder to recolor the filigree flowers from antique brass to gold and silver.
For my tag I used the Garment District collection and Marion's Junque and Gems for my Flower centers.
I've attached my flower to this tag. I created the tag background during my January Ustream. Can you say ohhhhhhh soooo Shabby?
Here is a process video of me making the flower.
I'm working on a few projects now using these flowers. My next few posts will be using them.
