Who do you love?

Feb 8, 2011

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.
