Summer Colours, Flower & Bling, Anything Goes!

Click on photo for larger image
This tag took on a life of it's own! It has been Glimmer Misted to death! It became so thick I had to double mat with black cardstock!

I made this flower a few weeks back when I discovered our local craft store Carsand-Mosher started carrying Wendy Vecchi products. Together with Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die cut and Wendy's Clearly For Art Modeling Film, I made this awesome flower! Fabulous material. It comes in transparent (which I used), black and white. Package contains three 8 1/2 x 11 sheets. When you heat it, it becomes very soft and pliable so you can shape it. If you don't like what you created, just heat it again! 

If you search on YouTube under "Wendy Vecchi Clearly For Arts" you will find a tutorial video on her demonstrating this technique and her product. It was filmed by Simons Says Stamp and Show. 

Supplies and stuff....
- Embossed tag with TH Texture Fade Checkerboard
- Sprayed tag with Glimmer Mists with Sun Sisters, Caribbean Blue, Cadillac Pink, Coffee Shop and Old Lace; abt. 3 or 4 times ; dried with heat tool
- In the right bottom corner where it's blue I sprayed some GooseBumps Clear Texture Spray; dried with heat tool until it bubbled.
- Stamp on side is a flourish from TH Boundless Flight set; highlighted with some glitter pens.
- Sentiment stamp is Stampin' Up! Peace Within set. Stamped on white cs; sprayed with Glimmer Mists; edged with DI Vintage Photo; attached with glue and foam square
- Bling from Michael's
- Circle around large bling that's covering hole, is TH Reinforcers.
- Flower is stamped with Adirondack Alcohol Inks; various colours.

Fabulous tab, Debbie! The colors you use are positively mouthwatering - absolutely love them. And I had to chuckle at your wonderful flower - I used one that looks almost identical on my project for this week's SSSS - you can see it on the blog in a couple of hours - great minds think alike and all that jazz. Super take on the bling challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
