Quilt Pattern Floral Tag
Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tag and Created by Hand says to create art using the theme of "Quilting/Stitches". I started my tag with a background using the Patchwork technique from the June/July 2010 Technique Junkies newsletter. Once the segments were colored with distress inks, I waterstamped the leaves background stamp from Heartfelt Creations. The zigzag stitching is a Tim Holtz stamp. The sentiment is from Club Scrap. Each of the flowers was stamped four times (two larger and two smaller stamps) and cut out. The petals were rounded using a rounding tool. The flowers and flourish are also from Heartfelt creations. I used a pretty brad as the flowers' centers. Using a paper piercer, I pierced holes along the edges of the tag and drew in the edge stitches.
