Welcome Back Friends,
Today I have a floral card featuring the Rosie Sentiment Die
Set by TLC Designs. I am following this months sketch challenge over on the TLC Designs Creative Sharing Facebook Page.
TLC Design's Supply List:
month there will be a brand new sketch special so check back each and
every month because we can't see wait to see your projects. For this
months special make sure to enter before the end of the month for your
chance to win. See details below.
onto the details of my card. I use the sketch as my main layout idea
but changed it quite a bit because I wanted to focus on this fun new die
set. First I figured out how to cut the diagonal piece by cutting along
one edge of the die then fussy cutting it out to create a stripe. Then
using the outside die and inside mat layer of the die I cut a frame. I
really like the way this turned out. Since the designer paper was purple
and white I decided to stick to those colors throughout for the most
part. Now lets take a close up look at my flowers.
each flower I used 2 large petals, 1 medium, and one small. Plus one
leaf. All were cut from white paper (110 weight) and hand colored using
archival inks. The petals were then hand shaped using a flower shaping
ball tool and mat from the back side to form the curve of the petals.
Lastly turn your petals over and press down with a small ball tool in
the center to create a plunging center. To finish the flowers off I used
silver stamens and a glue gun to build the flower and added glass
glitter to the petals with dries clear glue for a final touch.
Here is one last look at the final project.
