Jumbo Bloom !

Hello, it's Sue C here today and the project I'm sharing with you is a jumbo tag, which is one of my favourite things at the moment !


I started by glueing torn pieces of old book pages and DIY masking tape to the tag.


I then used the Wendy Vecchi Build a Blossom SiSi set with Translucent Embossing paste. When it was dry I then used Limelight and Hey Pesto Fresco Finish paint, blending it with a babywipe.


Using the same SiSi set I stencilled the flowers and then stamped over the top with black Archival ink.



I then took a piece of Grunge Paper and used iron on adhesive, the sort you find in a haberdashery, to stick some fabric to it.


I die cut several flowers using the Tim Holtz Jumbo Tattered Florals die.


I painted all of the flowers using Limelight Fresco Finish paint. I built up the colour around the edges of all the flowers using a piece of cut 'n' dry foam.



I also die cut two leaves using the same die and painted them with Limelight Fresco Finish paint and dabbed Hey Pesto and Green Olives Fresco Finish paint around the edges.


I made the big bow from a piece of cotton fabric that I painted with Limelight Fresco Finish paint. I added a Tim Holtz heart charm to the centre. I used the Tim Holtz Block Talk Lower Case die to cut the letters to make the word 'bloom' from cardboard. I then painted the letters with Fresco Finish paint.


I layered the jumbo flower and added a Tim Holtz number brad to the centre. I also used some Graphic 45 washi tape and added a Prima wooden button.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project, see you again soon !

Sue
