Tim Holtz - Tattered Florals Challenge= It's About Time

 Hi, Crafty Peeps,

I created this project for the Tim Holtz Blog Challenge - Tattered Florals.
 The Tattered Florals were cut from Crinoline and sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  Originally, I planed to moisten the crinoline and crinkle my flowers, but I was so pleased with how they opened up after I balled them up dry, that I decided to leave them alone.

I had some strips of kraft paper left over after cutting my card size, and to remain true to my pledge to use up my "leftovers", I decided I would use one piece for a belly band.  I used my scor-bug to pierce it and punched the holes through with my Tonic Pick.  I used Sew Easy floss for the stitching.   The Clock face beneath the flower was cut from my 6x6 pad.  After all the embellishments were on, I had this negative space in the upper left hand corner .  I tried a lot of things but was not happy.  Finally, I decided that what this composition needed was a piece that was complimentary to the belly band.  So I stitched a shorter piece, attached a Bo Bunny Time Piece Brad and secured it to the card with Scor Tape and Foam Squares.

The interior was photographed on it's side, intentionally.
