Making Embellishments with the Beary Scrap
We have a really fun challenge going on over at the Beary Scrap. We want to see you make your own embellishments. All of the DT has been trying to come up with fun ways to inspire you, so you will really want to keep checking each day to see what we've got in store for you.
This week, I decided to make a flower for you, using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. What might surprise you, is what I used to make the flower. I'm sure you probably have some baby wipes lying around your studio. Well, here's something new you can try with them. Use your Glimmer Mists to color the wipes. I don't even clean up where I have colors on my mat from other projects - just lay it down, and let it absorb what's there, and then keep spritzing to completely color it.
Dry the wipes thoroughly with your heat gun (they will feel rather stiff). Then cut 3 sets of the flowers with your die. Stack the flowers, and add glue or a brad in the center. You will be surprised how much this actually feels like fabric.
