So here it is Mr Holtz has presented us with a brand new challenge. Instead of the 12 tags of Christmas (Which in a way I kinda hope he will still do in addition to the monthly tags yes I know I am greedy) we now have the 12 tags of the Year. This begins with the season of Love.
Now I thought about this for a while, a friend said she was going to do a mini album so that nixed that idea, lots of people do cards again nixed that Idea. So I have decided to do Coasters. Now I do have a plan for these but want to leave it a bit before I share what I will be doing with said coasters. After all with 3d elements they will definitely not be for drinks!
For this coaster I used Tim’s Love Stamp, his script one. Stamped onto tissue paper and layered ( I used the Paint Dabbers in Raspberry and pale pink for this and also used them directly onto the stamps). Them over the coaster that I first painted in snow cap.
Once I had done this I used a Cuttlebug Die of Nested Hearts to cut out some cs for the centre heart.
The centre heart is not an even heart. I glued them together onto a chipboard base also cut from the Die. It took a bit of practice to know which way to fold the hearts but once I got it, it was small side to small side and larger side to larger side. Glued them together to make a concertina effect.
Misted with Smooch Spritz Cherry, hand painted each section with Multi Medium, before sprinkling with Red Laser glitter from Stuff by David.
The Flower is made with hand dyed Tattered Inspirations Seam Binding. This I stitched the bottom of and gathered it to form the flower, then ran the stitches through the bottom. Lastly adding a small Kaiser Rhinestone to the centre.
Winsor & Newton watercolours form the stem and leaves. These were then painted over with Renoir Iridescence Medium, and then traced around with a felt tip pen.
The small hearts are actually foil confetti that I had in my stash. I was not happy with how they looked so I used some more Multi Medium to coat them in the Red glitter then added a little glossy accent
Gold Leaf completes the edges and that is it Viola a Hearts and Flowers Coaster. So here it is:
