J and C Creations is Anything Goes with the emphasis on Sizzix dies. Now how could I let an opportunity go by without making my favourite flower. I'm not normally a very 'cute and girlie' crafter but I do love flowers and although this tag looks purple it is actually more of a gorgeous plum colour.
Here is a list of all the Sizzix dies used : Tag & Bookplates / Tattered Florals / Tattered Flower Garland / Festive Greenery.
To begin with I cut a tag using Foundations Coconut White card, this card works very well with Distress Inks. I inked the tag with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink from the Autumn collection, it's a lovely deep plum colour which my camera doesn't seem to pick out very well....sorry. Then I used Tim Holtz stamp Fabulous Flourishes spritzed with water, this will lift the ink back out of the card and leave a gentle image. The edges have been coloured with Black Soot Distress Ink and then the whole tag has been sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold Mica Mist.
link to a previous post. The leaves are from the garland die and have been coloured with Crushed Olive Distress Ink then veins added with a gold gel pen. The swirls were cut from green card and sprayed with mica as well. The sentiment is a stamp from stash embossed in Gold and cut out with Spellbinder die Mega Deckle Rectangles and mounted on foam pads. The ribbons are a green organza from stash and some American Seam Binding coloured with Seedless Preserves. I really like this ribbon as you can colour it to match your project so easily, after all how often do we spend ages hunting for just the right colour.
I hope you find this useful, there will be lots more flowers to come with a little finale at the end of the challenge so please pop in when you can. All items used here can be found at JandC Creations. Happy Crafting.
