Enchanted garden and flower tutorial
This time I want to show you "The Serene Night" - another wonderful stamp from Sweet Pea that I hadn't played with until now. The text is from sheet 7 plate 29 and the stamp from sheet 4 plate 24. I actually had this image coloured and matched with the papers. It was laying around and I needed to clean my space a bit so I thought it was time to get it finished. I also made two flowers from a gift wrap paper that happened to match perfectly! I love how this card makes me feel - like I was in some enchanted garden.
Here's a detail of the embossed background with golden birds that I made:
Here's how I made the flower:
I used my blossom nesties, but you could use circles or cut shapes out by hand. I even embossed them to give them an extra edge, but I don't know if it really shows. Cut out 6-7 of them in silk paper (the ones you have to gift wrap)
After you've cut them out, poke them into your hand like shown on photo to scrunch them up.
Glue them side by side and work your way around until you're satisfied with the result. You might want to use a smaller shape to fill in the gaps in the middle.
Use different shapes to make different sized flowers:
And there you have it. If you use my tutorial, please leave a comment linking to your post so we can have a look.
