Another week half gone…..time does fly!
Last week a friend and I took the day off and went craft shopping. My biggest find was this punch by McGill/Starburst, and used for the center of flowers. I like it!! It’s so easy to use with your piercing tool mat and a stylus. But first let me explain how the flower came to light.
A few posts back I made a scrunched (pink) flower using the scalloped punch. This time I used the same technique but used the 5 petal punch. And this is what I came up with….Okay this is good, although it reminds me of daffodils it’s too wrinkled for my taste.
I decided a more smooth texture would be better. And this is what I came up with…..
- I first punched out two pieces from the 5 petal punch, one for the bottom and one for the top.
- Taking the bone folder, I began shaping each piece upward.
- Then placed one upside down (petals pointing down) and glued the other one on top (petals pointing up).
- They looked identical to the pink flower above, but were now smooth in appearance.
- Using my new punch, I attached it to the center for the stamens.
- Easy breezy!!
and this is how the card looked after it all came together…
A glance inside ~
I sponged each flowers edge with More Mustard and popped them up with thicker dimensionals.
