Hope the shock of me blogging twice in as many days isn't going to be too much for you! Especially with four pictures to share, too.
The first two show a layout I made at a PaperArts workshop, led by the talented Sandie Vincent. One of my favourite moments of the day was learning how to make 3D flowers (rather like the Prima ones) using a six-petal flower punch. We used, I think, a big blue Woodware beastie, kindly loaned to us by Sandie.
The second pair of photos show my 'test' flower which I made at the workshop (the smaller, blue one) before I decided that for my LO, I wanted a more subtle effect to go with my meerkats. The larger orange flower is my first creation using the Tim Holz Sizzix Tattered Floral die.
I used some scrap orange card for the petals, inked the edges with an orange Brilliance Ink pad, and then for the final touch, once assembled, dotted gorgeous orange Stickles glue on the petal edges. You can't see it in my photo, but I also dotted some of the Stickles in the flower centre, too. I really liked the result and am looking forward to playing with this versatile die some more.
