Oh..Those Tattered Flowers!

Welcome to Week #13! This week's assignment: Page 65, Grungepaper Flowers. For anyone not already involved in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, you will need to hop on over to Studio L3 to get the details.

Now, I had just bought the sizzix big shot and Tattered Florals die waiting for this challenge so I was very excited! Of course, without giving anything away, I am sharing the Big Shot with my friend Julie, and pre-punched a bunch of stuff in advance, which sort of screwed up step #1 by assembling after cutting; making things, lets say, interesting; and I'm not sure if the xyron machine is the way to go for pasting onto grungepaper. That aside, I think they turned out splendidly! And once again, I fell to my new color theme: Ancient Linen, Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet. It does turn out so much cooler on a tag than on a white ATC...more likely the type of paper, but you know what I mean! (And Linda...can we please do the first tutorial soon?? I feel like I'm cheating, I'm using it so much! LOL!)
So I'm going to hop over now to see what everyone else has done (I try not to peek too much until after I'm done!). Have a great crafting week everyone! And wow, do I use a lot of exclaimation points..ah well, I probably talk that way too when discussing crafting...


  1. Whoa! Kim, I'm lovin' this new color scheme of yours!! It looks awesome! Your grunge flowers are fabulous - great tag!! :)

  2. A beautiful tag. I love the fantastic soft colours.

  3. Hey there Kim!! Great job with your tag!! Glad to know the Xyron isn't the way to go with grunge, I almost was going to try that myself. I love these colors, and they give such a vintage warm feel to them TFS :) I also use alot of exclamation points, but it's because we get so dang excited about ART... Keep creating!!!

  4. Love your colour combination and the spots and script on the flowers. They look very delicate.


  5. Lovely tag! I love the soft and subtle colours you used.

  6. Kim, congratulations on your new Big Shot! You'll be a die-cutting diva in no time, and you're off to a great start with these stunning grunge flower! I LOVE the color scheme-- it's about as perfectly vintage as you can get, and so beautifully shaded.

    Let's see, what is that first tutorial... hmmm... oh, yes! It's actually coming up soon.

    Great job, as always, Kim!
