Happy Monday! Spring is finally here in full force in New England, and I have a May Flowers challenge project to share today. I'm sure I'm not the only one who was really happy to learn that Pamellia Johnson, whom I discovered through her design team work for Frilly and Funkie, (and have been stalking through blog land ever since, shhh!), has started a new challenge blog of her own, Anything but Cute!.
I waited with great excitement for the first challenge, and was thrilled when I saw that it would be Vintage Garden! You have to go check out the design team inspiration! Total Gorgeousness!!
Along with Christmas projects, flowers are my favorite crafty make.
I inked the edges of these flowers.
These flowers got Distress Stains straight from the foam applicator on the bottles, and Distress Ink applied to the edges with a foam applicator.
I dyed seam binding with the same green Distress colors I used for my greenery, and tied bows onto my jars.
While contemplating the plain white jars, I had my best "Aha" moment of the year, and added a Tim Holtz Remnant rub to each of them. Voila, just the lagniappe this project needed. (Hey look at me, with two French words in one sentence: my high school French teacher would be so proud!)
Now I'm off to ogle the other beautiful entries in this challenge. Believe it or not, there are 42 of them already! How fun is that!?!
Enjoy your week!
