September Challenge by Monica

Boy, oh boy!!! ¬†It has been a crazy week for me…and so I am publishing this post a day late ūüôĀ ¬†Today, I have the last bit of inspiration you will be receiving for this month’s challenge. ¬†As a reminder, you had to choose one product from the ButterBeeScraps shop and use it in 3 different ways. ¬†Time is running out fast, too! ¬†All challenge entries must be received by 11:59pm on September 27th…that’s TOMORROW!!! ¬†Details on all the rules and how to participate can be found HERE.

On to today’s project…Monica decided to create some scrapbooking embellishments using the Bronze Square Metal Filigree Embellishment (#068-B). ¬†On her first embellishment, Monica cut her filigree in half and used one of the halves to created a pair of leaves tucked behind her paper flower. ¬†To create the paper flower, Monica used the Judy’s Blooms die from Cheerylynn Designs and finished it off with an SS30 Clear Flat Back Crystal Rhinestone.

Monica created her second embellishment using a white crocheted doily as the base, then cut her filigree apart to create individual petals that she layered onto the doily.  She then topped this embellishment with the same white paper flower and rhinestone as with her first.

Monica decided to pull out all the stops on her last embellishment and layered three different die cuts to form the base.  For the center flower, she layered three of the Bronze Square Metal Filigree Embellishments (#068-B), off-setting the petals and bending them up more on each consecutive layer.  She then added a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap (#CAP040-B) and an SS16 Light Colorado Topaz Flat Back Glass Rhinestone in the center of the flower.  Finally, Monica framed the center flower by cutting one petal off of her chosen filigree and placing one on either side of the flower with more Light Colorado Topaz bling.
