Hello to you,
Today I would like to share how I make my cheesecloth flowers.
I recently made a card using them as an embellishment and have had a couple of requests on how I made them so here we go.
The 1st card was the one I posted on FB, the 2nd card is one I made to show you how to make your own cheesecloth Flower.
What you need
White Card- used to make your own card blank, layered piece to stencil on, base for the flower, leaves and sentiment.
Punch or circle die
Leaves Die (I used Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves)
Double sided tape
Black Ink pad
Stamp (IndigoBlu Word Blocks #2)
Luscious Powder or your choice of paints, inks, pens, to colour the flower.
How to make a Flower
|While waiting for the cloth to dry out, make the base for the flower. I punched out a piece of thick card then covered it with double sided tape.|
|When you have finished this part, gently pull out the cheesecloth to make a fuller bloom.|
|I used two colours of Luscious powders to colour my flower. I mixed up the powder into thin paint.|
|Lightly paint your flower. If you want to darken the colour wait until the first coat is dry before adding more paint.|
|Add your choice of embellishment to the middle. Gems, beads or old pieces of jewellery are great for decorating these flowers.|
|I then stamped out the word 'Beauty' and die cut it out into a leaf shape. I also cut out a plain white leaf to layer under the word leaf.|
|The leaves were layered up, slightly off center to each other then glued to the underside of the flower.|
