Pile It On! Challenge - Handmade Embellishments

We have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...the theme is:

'Handmade Embellishments'

Our sponsor for this month's challenges is Doodle Pantry:
Prize - 3 digital images of the winner's choice!

I decided to make some flowers using my Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals' die and some snippets of paper from the 'Paper Heart' pad by Crate Paper. I inked around the edges of the flowers using 'Hickory Smoke' Distress Ink, then layered them up adding pearls to their centres. I used a Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp (from the 'Handwritten Borders' set) for the largest flower, and doodled stems for the smaller two...then added a doodled border to match.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.

Brilliant card Helen! I love the flower heads from the newsprint, so effective. And using the handwritten borders stamp set for the stem(s) is genius! Like Darnell says, an idea to store away fr or the future :)

Lovely to see you in the Playground again.
