Small pink carnations

Posted by Marie Smith on

Stamp Heartfelt Creations small carnations with Artistry Fancy Fuchsia stamp pad. (I used all the sizes on one large acrylic stamp block and stamped 5 times so that I could have lots of flowers to play around with.)

Die-cut the stamped flowers with the matching dies.

Lightly ink the edges of the petals with blossom tree ink and a dauber.

Add the most prominent colour with the beautifully rich Taylored Expressions strawberry milkshake.

Add random dark streaks with Altenew Purple wine.

Lightly spray the flowers at the back with a spritzing bottle. Put into Basics mould and run through your die-cutting machines as per the instructions. (If you don't have the mould, you may scrunch the flowers by hand after misting them.)

I scrunched the flowers a bit more and pressed them down in the centres on a flower-shaping mat with a ball tool to make them "cup" upwards and then left them to dry properly.

When dry, I added a spot of glue in the centres and added lilac beads. I also dabbed a few spots of glue on some petals and sprinkled Crystal clear glitter.


The background paper, adhered to velvety smooth cardstock card base, is from the Garden of Delights paper pack. I used mirror heat-activated foil with my GoPress & Foil machine and the Best wishes hot foil plate for the sentiment.
