Tattered floral challenge…if there's a wheel there's a way

Good day everyone! The post that I am going to share with you now is for Tim Holtz tattered floral challenge. I have a confession to make before showing you how I did my project on this one. Again, to remind everyone that we are moving house in 2 days time. We packed most of my craft materials and send 95% of them to the Philippines. Papers, embellishments, paints, mists, stamps, ink stamps, tools, Big Shot, dies and name it. Anyways, there is this page on FB that I would buy stuffs for scrapbook and 2 weeks ago I asked her to reserve for me 3 dies (tattered floral, fanciful flight & love struck). Last Monday I saw this challenge post from Tim Holtz and contacted her If I can get my dies this Thursday and begged her if I can use her big shot for me to use the dies that I would buy from her (They have a shop and the one I bought are the opened ones which they used for samples). After a couple of hours, I can't wait for her response, and actually while typing this she still hasn't replied yet. As the saying goes, if there's a wheel, there's a way. I used to work at scrapbooking shop here in Singapore and those times we would play with the dies that we have. I remember to have some cut-outs of tattered florals and ta-da I found it. I have cut it from paper, felt and chipboard. Sadly the felt and the paper that I used was an off-color and not sure what to do with it. So, I traced my chipboard and cut it out manually using scissors. I hope this does not disqualify me from the challenge hahaha. Honestly, I love how it turned out and would love to do more to give as a gift to my nieces. I hope they would love it as much as I do.


I traced my chipboards to shrink plastic, cut it, punch holes and heat it up using my heat gun. I used Adirondack alcohol inks to color the cut-out pieces and let them dry. Then I try to find some old and unused jewelry that I can used to make my very own jewelry. I color the bracelet using Adirondack alcohol ink to mix with my beautiful flower.

I hope you love them because I really do. Thank you so much for looking and have a great day! If you have time you can visit Tim Holz Blog and join in the fun.

Can't believe you hand cut them. They came out beautiful. I had all my craft items packed up for a while from a move. Didn't want to pull them out because I was moving in less than 6 months. It seemed like forever. I ended up buying a few thing to have a crafting fix. :)
