Welcome to my blog, crafty friends! Thanks, Tenia Nelson, for sending everyone over. I created two cards for this hop. For the complete details of the blog hop, make sure you drop by the Atlenew Blog.
HERE FOR YOU
- Create background paper using the gel printing plate and acrylic paints to use for the top layer of the flower.
- Paint white paper to create solid colors using some of the acrylic paints used with the gel printing plate to create monoprints. These will be used for the other layers of the flowers.
- Die cut the stem and leaves from the Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy die set using gold cardstock.
- Die cut the different layers of petals using the monoprinted papers with the Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy die set as well.
- Assemble the flowers using glue and foam squares.
- Stamp the sentiment from the Pots and Plants Stamp set using Obsidian Ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Adhere to vellum with double sided tape.
- Assemble card.
TIP: Apply glue at the center of the flower only for a more natural/softer looking flower.
By painting the paper, one can create more texture, and it will also create variations of colors on each petal.
- Use the extra flowers created for the first card.
- Swipe Wisteria Dye ink onto the white cardfront to create a background.
- Add a white frame using the Fine Frames Cover die.
- Emboss the sentiment using Obsidian Ink and clear embossing powder.
- Assemble the card.
