Hey ladies, here are a few ideas for all of you.. I never seem to be able to finf just the right flowers for my projects. So here is a way for you to make any style of flower, and color to match any project you are working on..
WHat you will need............
1.)flower punches of all shapes and sizes, or your cricut or cuttlebug,Spellbinders or desktop cutter, what ever you have available to you...
2.) white card stock/ or black with wite ink pads
3.)Ink pads in whatever colors you like, and black
4.)your favorite stamp sets
(6..) embossing folders(7..)embossing powders, versa mark pad and either embossing powders, or pearl ex powders
What I do is stamp random images all over my card stock, when you are happy with the way it looks, grab your ink pads, and baby wipes, put ink on the wipes and color your stamped white card stock, in any pattern you like, use 1 color or many colors, it is up to you. When you are happy with your card stock, either hand punch your assorted flower shapes, or run them through your die-cut machines. Once you have a variety of colored flowers, you then are ready to start embellishing them. Can emboss them with embossing folders to give them dimension, or stamp them with versa mark and emboss them with embossing powders, or with the pearl ex powders. Once you are satisfied with this, you can now begin stacking them, distressing them, do additional inking and chalking, add leaves and vines.Use brads or bling in the centers. Make them any way you wish to. And no matter what you will have flowers to match any project you are doing. The sky's the limit, and there are no rules. SO have fun with it all.
