My eyes have gotten a little buggy from coloring so I took the day off and played with dies, instead. I've got so many new ones I haven't used yet and more coming. Eiyiyi! The Outlawz Twisted Thursday calls for handmade flowers which I rarely take the time to do. Got plenty of dies to choose from, though. The daffodil here is from Spellbinders. I think I'd never used it because there were really no instructions and they weren't immediately apparent on the site, either. Thanks heaven for Youtube. I did a little shading with my Copics.
The flower is so dimensional that I decided to put it on a Spring tag using layered stitched tags by Gina Marie. I wanted to add some sparkle and shine for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge so I cut the sentiment out of green glitter paper. "Hello" is from Elizabeth Craft and Spring is from Echo Park. Added a jeweled butterfly from Little B, some Doodlebug sequins and two shades of crinkle ribbon from DL.Art.
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art Thankful Thursday #226 Spring Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #80 AG, Simply Create Too April #137 Use Die Cuts, Simply Papercraft April #76 AG, Crafting with an Attitude #38 AG...
