Beauty of Nature
Hey folks! Technique Junkies is sponsoring the Bella Creations blog this month, and the design team has been working hard on some special projects. We each used the fun Tie Dye Chic Embellishments technique from the new Stampbooking CD but each project is so different. :-) The beauty of this cd is that the techniques can be applied to cards and 3D projects as well as scrapbook pages. There are 75 awesome techniques on this cd!
I wanted to showcase this technique on a card since that is my primary medium of choice. I've used this Tie Die Chic technique with some leaves that I cut out with Tim Holtz's leaf die. The leaves are stamped with Holly's Tattered Background from I Brake for Stamps and I used my fingers to shape them and give them a real 3D appearance.
The sentiment is also from I Brake for Stamps, and I've used the Wisped Frames technique on it. I tied some linen thread around each leaf stem and I wrapped it around the edge of the card base. I opted for a clean and simple card base so that the leaf embellishments can take center stage.
Please visit the Bella Creations blog to see the directions for this great technique. You have the entire month to play along with this challenge and you could win the Scrapbooking cd as well as a 1 year online subscription to the Technique Junkies newsletter!
