Who do you love?
As a child growing up I loved getting to visit my grandparents. Grammy Childers and Grammy Spinney always had one thing in common… flowers. I remember knowing I was at Grammy Spinney’s house as soon as I saw the pansies in her yard. And every summer Grammy Childers had the most gorgeous Hydrangea bush just below her kitchen window. The blooms were the size of dinner plates. Her garden always had flowers growing around it as well as along the sidewalk of her house. So each time I see flowers blooming I always think of them.
So since flowers seem to remind me of those two special ladies I thought I would share this tag I created for Ranger. It was in there booth during CHA-W. The flowers on this tag were created using the Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals Bigz Die, the bottle and script stamps by Wendy Vecchi and loads of Ranger products. I accented the flower centers using cream pearls and the bow with a vintage button. The seam binding was white so I mixed Perfect Pearls and Perfect Pearl Mists together to create a paint and applied it to the seam binding using a paintbrush. I then created the bow, scrunched it a bit and let it air dry. And I really like how the script stamp image on the tag looks like rain on a window when using Perfect Medium to stamp the image onto the tag and applying UTEE. I wish I had a better photo showing the bottle the flowers are in… dang it. But I stamped the image onto grungepaper, inked it using Broken China Distress Ink, covered it with UTEE to give it a glass look then stamped the image again onto an old book page, cut out the center part of the image and attached it to the front of the bottle to look like a label. Of course I then accented the label with crystal coarse glitter.
