Hopefully both Wendy and I are showing the flowers we made at the craft class we attended last week, Wendy did a tutorial on these yesterday if you want to make one. This was my first attempt and when I got home I made this card to, hopefully, show it off!
Here is the first flower I made using die cuts from Tim Holtz tattered floral die for Sizzix. I have shown it with some foliage cut from spellbinders foliage die which I inked in the die with my new favourite brilliance peacock ink pad.
Once I had cut the foliage I used the negative to create the background paper by using this as a stencil on a sheet of plain cream PMD cardstock. Using the same ink blended the colours and as this inkpad contains 3 shades it's very easy to blend the colours.
The corners are cut from Spellbinders enchanted labels four. The blue panel was created by rubbing the ink pad over an embossing folder before running a sheet of blue card through my GC.
This picture shows the effect of this inking technique.
