This week at One Powerful Hour I have chosen the theme of "My Favorite Flower". I seem to almost always have a flower somewhere in all of my designs since I can't have them in the house. I have allergies to flowers and grass so I like to create pretty flowers that I can have around the house all the time. For this challenge I have chosen my favorite flower - the Tulip. I hope you will come and join us at OPH for this fun project and I can't wait to see your favorite flowers!!
For this project I have selected a tag and embossed it with my Cuttlebug using a leaf embossing folder. Using a decorative scissors I cut the bottom of the tag for a bit of a lacy look. I then used Distress inks in Bundled Sage, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door and applied these all over the background of the tag, using the green to bring out the leaves.
I cut out Tulips for some paper I had from K & Company and added Stickles in Fruit Punch to all the edges of the flowers. I attached them to the tag with pop dots to give a bit of dimension to the project. Using my trusty Dymo Label maker I created the Tulip sticker. I then added a few words on my feelings for the flowers and a couple of buttons. To finish off I added the blue and red ribbons.
