Spring Flowers - 12 Tags of 2016 - March

This is my take on the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016-March.  There are some products I don't yet have in my craft hoarding stash, but to learn a new technique you can always improvise.

I'm also entering this tag in the Simon Says Stamp-Monday Challenge to Take a Leap into the Unknown. Every Tim Holtz monthly challenge offers me a chance to try something new; I haven't tried layering a stencil and coloring with Watercolor Crayons in this way. I also used alcohol ink to color the metal flowers...the ink colors were a little darker than I anticipated but when I added some distress paint dauber in blue, I think the overall effect turned out okay.

While I'm at it, I think I will also enter into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday  Challenge...create something Touchy Feely...the corrugated cardboard has a lot of added texture as well as the metal flowers, and the texture created by the stencil layers.
