Morning ladies sorry for my lack of blogging over the weekend Blogger has been a real pain and I have hardly been able to get on here , still I'm on here now so let me tell you about this weeks challenge over at Die cut Dreams challenge blog the theme this week is make your own flowers on your creation.
Here's my DT creation for this weeks , I used 2 of my new Tilda stamps
But I didn't colour Tilda as I wanted the flower to be the star of the show and didn't want Tilda to steal the limelight coz she's so pretty and even without colour.
This flower I cut twice with my Tim Holtz die then I ran it through the paper cripper back and forth a few times to soften the card then I screwed them up and flatted them out and inked the edges with Tim Holtz inks in (colours; Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet)
Then I soaked them in Cherry Blossom coloured Tattered Angels Glimmer mist and dried them with my heat gun.
next I stamped the petals with the Victorian Velvet TH distress ink and a WoJ flourish stamp.
Once they were completely dry I turned them over and on the back using a large embossing tool I made them curl back by making circular motions on each petal while pressing down onto an embossing mat when all the petals were curled in I turned them the right way up and made circular motions with the tool in the middle of both flowers so they were really nicely shaped I then glued them together.
I added some chunky glitter and the giant pearl button and there you have it ........
