Create a card – Twinkling H2Os Flower

Hi Everyone;

I’m back this week with a card that’s a little more involved but totally worth the effort I think.

Supplies I used:

image

  • Neenah Dessert Storm Cardstock
  • Watercolor paper
  • Silhouette
  • Brad
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Paper Smooches stamp set
  • Twinkling H2Os
  • Mini mister
  • Corner Chomper
  • Piercing mat and tool

Instructions:

  • Use Silhouette to cut a 3-D flower out of water-colour paper
  • spread out the pieces of the flower on your craft mat

  • use mini mister to wet your pots of Twinkling H2Os
  • paint lighter green on leaves and let dry
  • paint centre of leaves and edges with darker green
  • paint all of the petals in this order: lighter yellow all over, then orange from centre of flower out and finish with a dryer brush stroke of a deeper orange (light to dark)
  • set aside to dry a little
  • cut a card base from craft card stock and round two outside corners with Corner Chomper
  • Stamp sentiment with black ink
  • at this point, when flower is not completely dry use finger to gently curve each petal slightly
  • use piercing tool to put a hole in the centre of each petal
  • line up petals the way you’d like them to look
  • add a coloured brad as your flower centre
  • position leaves as you’d like them & adhere with glossy accents
  • use foam adhesive to adhere to card base
  • Done

The shimmer is gorgeous in really life and I can see how these flowers would be nice as finishing touches on wrapped gifts.
