It's certainly been a long week at work this week, well in fact it's been a long two weeks, but for different reasons that I wont readdress. I have today created a card using the new Jasmine Beckett Griffiths "Gargoyles of Notre Damm" available from Crafts and Me HERE.
I did a bit of masking on the images as well as creating a moon and then airbrushed the background, although I didn't mask around the images too well and there was a little white area left that I had to touch up, but we learn don't we.
The flowers were made from punches and I've popped a little tutorial at the end of this post if you interested in making them.
My second card is my DT card that I thought I'd pop on here in case you missed it. On this card I used "Day Dreamer by Sara Burrier availalble HERE.
And if your interested, here's the tutorial on how to make the scruncy punched flowers.
This is what you'll need
3 Punches or Dies
Mini Mister filled with water
Ink if liked
Punch 4 large, 3 medium and 3 small Flowers, I have used punches for this tutorial but I have also used Dies, so experiment with whatever you have available
You will need to pierce a hole in the centre of each flower. I tend to do this individually as it you do it when all 10 are together it can be quite hard to pierce through.
Ink the edges if you like this style, bear in mind that once we add the water the ink will spread, but I love the look of this. Add your brad to the centre
Spray the flower with the water mister and fold up each petal to the centre. The more scrunchier the better, so don't worry about being particular.
It will look like this. You can either use your heat gun and gently unravel the petals and heat or you can leave it to dry naturally.
I used the centre petals closed. You could add a pearl centre and some glimmer mist for that sheen and sparkle finish.
For the smaller ones I used 4 medium flower punches and 4 small and followed the same procedure.
Have a good weekend.
