Any thing goes........

and what fun I had with this challenge!!  ANYTHING GOES this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!

I recently acquired the Big Shot and a new die by Sizzix......and SURPRISE....it's a floral die....the Flower's 3D. So I pulled out some Linen and Crinoline and a few of my other to go to dies......Tattered Floral and Tattered Leaves, along with a few of my other Sizzix dies and began cutting.

Now, before I could begin the coloring process I SOOO needed to reorganize my Mini Misters and replenish my supply of Distress Reinker Inks! I pulled out my handy dandy Mini Mister Organizers and set about my task.

Phew....glad I got that done.....now I could begin the fun stuff!! I made a few of the 3D flowers....watch out they can be addictive!!

I cut the leaves from Crinoline and colored them with Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint. When dry I fold over the bottom of the leaf and staple to give the leaves dimension.

I adhered all the flowers to a piece of chipboard with Multi Medium and added a bit of colored seam binding as a finishing touch. Adhered a pin back and the corsage was complete!!

I sooo wish I had brought my camera with me so I could show you how proudly my mom wore this on her jacket as we went about celebrating Mother's Day!!

So........there you have it......ANYTHING GOES!! what comes to your mind?? Can't wait to see your creations!! Don't forget to head on over to the other Teamies blogs for a look see!!

and who wouldn't mind winning this..........??!??!
