I liked the sound of this challenge but it took me a while to work out how I was going to approach it. Then other things got in the way so I'm only entering in the final hours of the challenge.
For the aspect of self propelled flowers, I decided that mine would be using their initiative and hitching a lift. I suppose they are working on the premise of 'why do yourself, what others can do for you'!! Hope that makes sense!
Here's what I made and I'll explain where the ingredients for the challenge come in as we go through the pictures:
|The finished tag which I hope gives a sense of movement from the cog stamping, the pink 'paths' , the butterflies flying along the paths and the flowers hitching a lift on their wires attached to their butterfly friends.|
|This photograph and the next two, show the text stamped onto card coloured with dylusion ink sprays. It's a Tim stamp from which I chose the relevant sections for my tag.|
|The last section of the quote.|
|This view of the tag gives a clear image of the smaller flowers 'hitching' a lift from the butterflies. The flowers are double sided and some wire was twisted together and glued between the two flowers and then attached to the butterflies.|
I had great fun making this tag although it did stretch the brain a little which is another reason why it's taken me so long to get it finished - it's not that I'm slow in making of course!
Hope you like it. If you do, please leave a comment as I read them all and will visit you in return.
