Hi everyone. Time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS.
This challenge is being hosted by the wonderfully talented Bonnie (Stamping with Klass) and she has chosen this sweet code word ...
I started by making my bloom. I punched a white daisy and sponged with three colours of distress inks (ripe persimmon, worn lipstick, picked raspberry). I cut out one of the petals, folded the flower in half, pulling together the petals on either side of the one I cut out, so that it formed a rounded shape. Sounds a bit confusing, but easy to do. :)
I then punched four white small suns and sponged the tips of the rays with yellow. I cut a slit into the center of each sun, and then used my tweezers to roll it up (similar to the rolled flower dies you can buy) into a cone shape. Four of them were glued to the top of the bloom to create the spiky center.
Here's a link to a written tutorial I did quite a while ago on how to make 3-D daisies, including the spiky center. I made some changes to make the flower above, but the centers are done just like in the tutorial.
The butterfly has a sprayed yellow frost background which I cut to fit in behind the black outline layer (cut with my Silhouette Cameo).
We're excited to have Flo (Flos Habseligkeiten) as our Guest Designer this month at ATCAS. Please click HERE to see her wonderful butterfly card, along with the cards from the rest of the design team.
As always, there's two weeks to join in this fun challenge. Hope to see you in the gallery! :)
