I haven't done a flower tutorial in a while. I figured it was time!! I ordered a BUNCH of flower dies not to long ago, and are finally dipping into the stash and creating. Mixing and matching is a wonderful thing!! The possibilities are endless!!...
Ink of your choice
Card Stock color of your choice for flowers
Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower, Black-Eyed Susan
Stylus and pad set (I use McGill)
Art Glitter Good Earth. Elements Earth Textures or Flower soft
Die-Namics die : Botanical Beauty
Cut one large and one small flower from your Sizzix die, Cut 2 of the medium size middles from your Die-Namic die.
Ink the edges of your flowers using the blending foam applicator for a soft look.
On the back side of your flowers, use the stylus on the pad press down using a circular motion on each petal until they curl upwards.
Do the same for the middles.
Add some adhesive to the middle and sprinkle a generous amount of Elements or Flower Soft pressing down a bit to get the particles to sink into the glue. Tap off any excess.
Here is your finished Lazy Dayzie. You can add leaves underneath or cluster them together as I did in the photo below.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. You can substitute any similar dies to achieve the same effect. I will continue to experiment with mixing and matching all of my wonderful dies!!. Till next time, Happy Flower making!
