Dreamweaver week: Tag and flower

Want to know how to use your Dreamweaver stencils differently? Well, Isa'sArt will show you today with a very clever way to make her flowers.. Who would have thought? 
Let us know what you think of this technique and the beautiful tag 


I started with stencilling the Christmas baubles on paper with Distress inks.
I then cut them out making sure to leave that "pointy end" as it will be perfect to apply the glue, and then distressed the edges.
To glue the petal/baubles, I took a button, and glued the end of the smallest baubles (5 of them) at the back of the button. I then glued the longest baubles the same way and left it aside to dry

Tip of the day
I then spritzed the flower with a bit of water for two reasons
1- It makes it easier to give the proper shape to the flower
2- I can now add a bit of mica powder to give a metallic look to my flower.
