I hope you are having a great week. Tomorrow is the last day for the Earth Day Challenge. You still have time! You can click here for the details!
Today for Earth Day Week I made a card using a flower made out of paper towels. Scroll on down and I'll show you what I did!
I have this box for when I spray or mist my projects. I took a Tattered Angels class and the teacher told us to put paper towels under our projects to catch the over flow. She showed us a flower that she had made with the left overs. How cool is that?! So I put paper towels and sometimes tissue paper in my box.
Here's a paper towel. You can see a square :)
Here's one that is not quite finished be sprayed on yet.
So I took a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Then I painted Twinkling H2O's over it. I used the one called Ice. These colors really do twinkle as the dry! So pretty! Then in Emerald Green I painted the stem and leaves. I probably painted 5 layers to get a nice green color.
I cut my paper towel into strips. I did 1.5 inches wide. Then I folded it into a rosette and glued the ends.
I found this chipboard piece and first tried to use alcohol inks to paint it. That didn't work so I painted it with a white acrylic paint. Then I really just didn't know what to do so I covered it with the Tim Holtz tissue tape.
Here's a close up. I punched a hole in the chipboard and attached this little Thanks tag by Making Memories. Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time my friends...what will you make?
