For my project, I made a large heart shadow box heart out of a tray I picked up at a shop for almost nothing. The flowers were inspired by the flower canvas I made for Tim's Tattered Floral challenge early this year and are made of a mix of some of my favourite materials: Wendy Vecchi's Modeling Film, sticky-back canvas and foil tape. The heart is 8 inches wide and features one of my favourite photos of my grandmother. I took step photos.
Paint the metallic flowers with Distress Paints (Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Broken China).
The edges were stamped with this great text stamp by Tim Holtz.
Remember to ask you local craft shop to pre-order the dies. You can also pre-order them at Simon Says Stamp: Jumbo Tattered Florals, Garden Greens, Spring Greenery, to make sure you get them quickly and before everyone else.
Thank you for looking!! Be sure to check out the Sizzix blog to see all the gorgeous projects created by the DT members using these dies.
