Hand Cut Flower and Leaves

Friday, April 5, 2013

Time for one of this girl's favorite challenges over at Splitcoast!  I'm having a lot of fun playing with mixed media!  The challenge today is to make a round, hand cut flower.  This also qualifies for the Free For All Challenge to make a glittered birthday card.  Links are below.

How to do it:
1)  make a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card base and round one corner
2)  cut a slightly smaller rectangle in Kraft Resist and again round one corner
3)  cover the Kraft Resist Rectangle with Distress Paint, rub with a baby wipe and add Picket Fence Distress Stain through a template
4)  hand cut three leaves, cover with Peeled Paint Distress Paint, dry, then ink edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
5) once dry, add some Glue 'n Seal and sprinkle on glitter
6)  cut three circles from the Kraft Resist, cover with Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint, and rub with a baby wipe
7)  cut each layer of the flower to resemble a fringe, then use a piercing tool to wrap and shape the petals
8)  dot on more Glue 'n Seal and sprinkle on glitter
9)  scrunch and adhere the layers together with dimensionals
10)  add twine to a button and use dimensionals to glue to center of flower
11)  cut a small rectangle from Kraft Resist, cover with Picket Fence Distress Stain, dry, then stamp on the first part of the sentiment
12)  stamp the second part of the sentiment on the card

What's been used:
Paper:  SU! Soft Suede and Paper Stash - Kraft Resist
Ink:  Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and Versafine Onyx Black
