good evening all.well no card to share tonight as i have had a little play with my sizzix dies instead as well as distress inks and oh what fun i have had.so here are a few piccys of what i`ve made and i will also tell you what die and inks i have used, oh and a warning that if you are of a nervous disposition then it may be wise to skip the very last photo.lol
so for these little roses which are about 1cm in diameter i have used the sizzix die 656545 flowers,3d.there is 2 sizes of roses to make and these are the smallest.i used some scrap cream paper and inked my heat proof mat with wild honey and rusty hinge distress ink and spritzed with water.used my hands to mix the 2 colours and dryed the diecuts with my heat gun.then used a little quilling tool and voila.quite sweet aren`t they.
so this is the same sizzix die but these are the bigger roses.these are about 2-3 cms wide and it all depends how tight you roll them as to how big they will be.for these i have used the same technique but using aged mahogany and victorian velvet inks and silver shimmer mist.the paler one was dabbed on another area of the mat hence the colour difference.
oooo and this is my fav.this one is using the tim holtz sizzix tattered florals 656640.
i cut out 2 large,2 medium and 1 small flower using old book pages and used my ink pads in dried marigold and mustard seed direct on the paper then spritzed the flowers with water, scrunched them up and dried with my heat gun and then layered them up with a gem centre.will be trying to make a selection of colours of this one.
and this one, well what can i say,!!!!! NOTE TO SELF, WEAR RUBBER GLOVES.
oh my word i will be trying forever to get this off.will have to use my scrubber sponge and shampoo i think.lol
also managed to get to a dunhelm store today and got 3 dcwv paper stacks hafl price.i got the taj mahal one ready for my whiff of joy stamps, also got the citrus stack and the latte one.wasn`t much left though and am kicking myself now for not buying the other 3 designs but i had to reign myself in a little.
well i hope you like my flowers.will hopefully be making a card tomorrow to use them on.
have a greet weekend.
