Use Up Your Stash Challenge

As I have promised myself this year that will use up my stash in order to make room for new stuff I have noticed the flowers in my craft room have been piling up. This is the result of my 15 minute challenge including hunting and grabbing supplies from around my craft room. So I got out my mists and stencils and stamps and got to work.
I first started with some old MME paper and just started cutting #10 and #8 tag sizes. Then I grabbed a doily stencil and hit it with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.
I have a bin of fibers so I pulled the rust colored yarn and wrapped it around for some texture. I stapled a torn piece of inkjet printed vellum that I have had for at least 8 years, dyed a couple of Mon Ami Gabby paper flowers w/ the same Lindy's spray and layered it on an old Prima flower. Glued those down over some Want2Scrap bling that I cut from a bigger piece and 2 feathers I ripped from a hideous broach like pin thingy I had in my stash.

I have had these hand dyed tags in my supplies for years, I dyed a bunch of stuff using Making Memories dye packets and then I never used not one of them. There they sat all these years all organized nicely by color on a shelf.  I stamped it using Prima stamps and tucked it in the vellum.

Okay so here is my challenge to you, start a timer at 15 minutes grab 10 items from your stash and create a quick work of art, use it up I say, cause if you don't, someone will after you are dead and gone.
