Hello crafters! Welcome back and I am Aida with a home decor Sizzix Tutorial project I hope you will like. This idea started off in my mind as a card, and as you know like many creative projects, it ran away, ending different. You can still use the flower the way I did for a card, or for weddings as hand-pieced accents.
I used 3 dies for this projects and they are Lori Whitlock's Sizzix Thinlits Simple Flowers #2, Alterations Thinlits Holiday Greens and Alterations Movers and Shapers Magnetic die Mini Flourish. The Flower sits on a canvas mixed-media base created by spreading Texture Paste with a palette knife and after, misting with Distress Spray Tumbled Galss and Weathered Wood. Next, lay the Tim Holtz Latticework stencil on the canvas and daub with white gesso on an Inking Tool.
The flower was made up of 5 layers in different sizes and you'll find the Simple Flowers #2 Thinlits very versatile. Each layer was inked with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and then Silver Stickles daubed randomly at the edges. Below you can see a closer shot of the flower layers. I die cut 2 leaves that came in the pack and added them under the flourish at the top right.The white card stock foliage from the Holiday Greens Thinlits frames the flower perfectly.
I love Glitter Card Stock for flourishes as the sparkly texture is very pretty when it catches the light. A pale blue ribbon and Pearl brad in the flower center finishes the elegant look.
This is a project that requires some patience assembling and once you've finished, you'll have to agree the result is worth it. Here's wishing you happy creating!
