Card stock in cream or white
Glimmer Mist or your favorite color spray
Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Die
Mcgill Sun Punch
nonstick craft mat
Die cut 2 of the spindley flowers from the Tattered Florals die or each flower you make.
Working on a non stick craft mat, spray both sides of your flowers with your favorite color mist. I used Glimmer Mist for this tutorial.
Move the flowers around in the Glimmer Mist very gently as these diecuts are delicate when wet. Make sure the color is saturated throughout the card stock.
Using a craft dryer, dry them until they are 90% dry. Leave ever so damp, just enough to wrinkle the petals up a bit by pinching the individual petals until they are distressed. Then hit with the craft dryer one more time to completely dry. Or air dry.
Using your choice of craft adhesive, stack one flower onto the other staggering the petals.
Punch out 5 sun shapes. I used a patteed paper. You could use card stock and mist it whatever color you want.
Using the thin handle of a paint brush, cup 4 of the sun shapes around the end of the brush handle and form tight cup shapes. Leave one sun shape flat.
Stack the cupped shaped suns one into another to form a cluster. then place the cluster onto the flat piece.
Adhere your cluster onto the middle of your flower.April 10, 2011 at 11:39 pm #102020
I will be doing the tutorial for these flowers towards the end of the week. I was experimenting and managed to get 2 different flowers done today. The color I used on these is Glimmer Mist in Lavender Feilds and I just brushed it with a little Wisteria Colobox Chalk Ink. (I forgot to list it in products. You could also just spray or brush on a little bit of a enhancing color, but the chalk ink works wonderfully.April 10, 2011 at 11:41 pm #102022
Very gorgeous….and I'm thinking that you use the spindly die from that set to make these beauties…..TFS!!!! I always LOVE to see your name in the Tuts section. It usually means something wonderful awaits us….April 10, 2011 at 11:45 pm #102023April 10, 2011 at 11:50 pm #102021
Good Lord, I just thought of a variation..Well that will be the surprise to jazz these up a bit…I hate when that happens.April 10, 2011 at 11:53 pm #102024April 11, 2011 at 12:06 am #102025
Those are gorgeous!!! Do you spray on the GM or do you paint it on. The color is so saturated looking.
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."April 11, 2011 at 12:29 am #102026
After the flowers are die cut, I lay them out on the non stick craft sheet and spray them on both sides, then I move them around in the excess Glimmer Mist to soak up whatever is left on the mat. That gets them good and saturated in color and distributes the glimmer.April 11, 2011 at 12:48 am #102027
Since I don't have Timmy's Floral die yet, can someone measure the width of the flowers in the die so I can cut them the right size with my Cricut. The Tattered Floral die is on my wishlist….April 11, 2011 at 1:17 am #102028April 11, 2011 at 1:38 am #102029April 11, 2011 at 5:20 am #102030
