So Long Dynamic Duos!

I'm a little sad because one of my favourite challenge blogs, Dynamic Duos, is shutting down after this last 100th challenge.  I really enjoyed their colour challenges because they usually used only two colours, sometimes three plus neutrals.  That's right up my alley!  And their last challenge is a gorgeous one:

I also wanted to enter the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge because I've been itching to do a hidden tag design with it.  

I decided that I wanted to use one of my newer Bigz dies before it is retired, the Blossom Party Originals die. (Why do I do that to myself?  Buy dies just before a new catalogue comes out!  Not too bright!)

Here's the result:

  •  The I Am Me Designer Series Paper has some great So Saffron and Pool Party designs in it and I chose three of them to use here.  This series is retiring as well, like all the DSP usually does, so don't wait too long to get some of it for yourself.  It will only be available while supplies last.
  • It was so much fun putting together those blossoms.  I sponged the edges of the So Saffron and the Pool Party flowers and it really gives them definition.  What a variety of floral shapes here!

  • And here's that little hidden tag, stamped with an image and a sentiment from Fabulous Florets, another set that is retiring.  The clear mount set is already sold out, so don't wait to order the wood mount version!  I was able to create a little slot for the tag by finding the center of the Pool Party/So Saffron panel and measuring one inch to the right and to the left of center.  On each of those lines I added several Stampin' Dimensionals to lift up the panel and create the slot for the tag.  
  • The tag has been formed using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, so is 2 inches wide.  Some Pool Party 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon adorns the end of the  tag!
