You know those homey crafty TV- programs, where everything gets done with a smile? Strömsö is that kind of program and this was not one of those projects, even though I do like the way it turned out. I am posting my tag for the Chocolate Baroque colour challenge and the SimonSaysStamp challenges Monday and Wednesday (Anything goes on both of them)
This tag was not the background I planned for these punky flowers I made of shrink plastic... The flowers were beautiful enough, but it just wouldn't work. I was packing my stuff away when I ran into this tag that had been watercolour stamped with a piece from texture fragments ages ago. The flowers fit nicely, so to emphasize the CB colour challenge, I used an ink blender to colour some orange on the background... and all of a sudden the flowers seemed out of place again! I guess the translucent shrink plastic just can't take too colourful a background. I tried blotting the orange out, but that didn't help so I added some crackle paste through a TCW stencil... and that built a place for the flowers to sit. Pink silk torn from a scarf, and I decided I was done with this one. I still have the background I originally planned and a bunch of flowers... I'll have to get back to them before this challenge is over!
