Flower Power

 SSS Monday Challenge

 SSS Monday Challenge

Hi you all it's time again for another Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
This week the theme is: Flower Power. In this context I made a powerful flower for a friend.

As I'm allways looking for something different, this time I wanted to use something that was meant for something else and then re use it. For this I chose the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die FANCIFUL FLIGHT Bigz Butterfly Alterations. It is meant to create a butterfly with it and I used the wings for my flower.

For the leaves (wings) I used Ecoline Liquid watercolours. Light Yellow, Light Green, Light Orange, Sky, Carmine in combination with Dylusions inkspay Bubble Gum Pink Shimmer. For the spatters on the leaves I used Dylusions inkspray Black Marble.
The frame on top of the leaves were painted with black gesso.

Here you can see a little bit of work in progress:

I wanted to create a bright background and it turned into something grunchy. At first I used Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint. I dropped a little Infusions Sunset Beach and Slime on that. When it was all dry I put Distress Oxide Walnut Stain all over it and covered the edges with Hickory smoke. That all gave it that grunchy look.

For the stamping I used Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane Clear Stamps. For the embossing of the words 'Special' and 'Unique' I used embossing powder from Ranger, Orange and Red Geranium.

I hope you all enjoyed my blog about how it's made and hope to see you next time!
