I've been seeing these flowers all over the internet, so wanted to try my hand at them. Wow! What fun! I cut 10 scallop circles out of pages of an old book, using Spellbinders Nestie dies. I stacked them together and fastened the stack with a mini brad. Then, I just crumpled the layers, one at a time and "smooshed" at them to get the flower shape. Once I had what I wanted, I sprayed the flower with two of my "Gloria mists." One mist is a mix of SU cranberry and Holiday Red re-inkers and white Pearl Ex. The other mist is a mix of SU creamy caramel re-inker and aztec gold re-inker. I ended up making a bunch of these, but only one seemed to fit on the card for today.
The greeting is a SU stamp. I also misted a mulberry paper rose with the cranberry mist. It was a sort of mauve/pink when I started. The paper soaks up the mist very well, which helps to change the color. I use an old box for my "misting station" to keep from misting everything in sight!
I hope you enjoy today's card and that you get some inspiration from the sketch. Make sure to stop over a the CPC site and let me know you made a card. You can load to the gallery there. Put CPCST45 in your key words so we can find your work!
