CTD130 & SSS96–Enjoy Spring Flowers

 

SONY DSC

Hello eveyrone~

I have one card to show you today :) I used Patty’s Pretty Posies set from InStyle Stamps. I’ve enjoyed using this set throughout this month. I’m so glad Virginia, the owner of ISS asked me to be a guest DT for the month of February!! It was such a fun one month! Thank you Virginia for giving this wonderful opportunity. You can check my other cards using the set HERE, HERE and HERE.

 

I’m submitting the card to a couple challenges…The sketch is coming from Sweet Stop Sketch 97 (SSS97) . The color combo was inspired by Color Throwdown 130 (CTD130)I had to use green a little bit for the leaves :P I hope it’s still OK to enter…

The image was used my favorite coloring medium, Copic markers. I masked the mat and sponged light brown color with dauber. The sentiment was used PTI Tag For Spring set.

I made the paper flower with paper punches (see the photo below). I punched 3 big flower, 3 small flowers and 2 leaves. Before assembling each piece, I used stylus (mine is the end of Sharpie marker, lol) and pressed each flower with circular motion until the flower is shaped like a cup. Then I inched and bended each petal using the straight tweezers. (I use the ones for eyebrows) I love using hot glue to assemble the flower but I think you can use any liquid glue for paper crafting. The closed bud on the center was just pinched tight after I put glue on the center of the flower. (Be careful not to burn your finger if you use hot glue!) The each flower was overlapped and I attached leaves on the back of flower :) I think it was turned out pretty cute!
