Design Team Entry

Here's something a little different :)

I usually don't make many things without a colored image, but I just had to try out the Tissue Flower Tutorial at SCS. My tissue flower didn't turn out quite the same, but I think it still turned out okay.  This definitely will not be the last time I'll be making one of these!

I created this card for the design team call.  I've used a few things on this card that they already carry including Nestabilities Labels Nine (for the frame behind the tissue flower) as well as Nestabilities Dahlia (which I used to cut out the layers of the tissue flower).  I cut out at least 10 tissue layers of 3 Dahlia Nestie shapes, punched a hole in the middle using my Crop-a-dile, and stuck a BasicGrey brad in the middle.  I misted the tissue flower with a hint of Glimmer Mist (Pearl) then inked it up a bit using a few Distress Ink Pads (Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold).  The papers I used were from Pink Paislee 365 Degrees, which I cut out and layered and glued on using my Tombow Mono Dispenser and Permanent Refill.  The cotton trim and ribbon which wraps around some of the layers were oldies from my ribbon stash.  I also added some color to the charm using Smooch Siren.  Whew, I seem to already have a lot of the stuff that they carry :)

Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
