We spent the weekend at the Tree House Cottage and this is what greeted us when we drove up on Friday afternoon ~ a beautiful azalea with a hundred butterflies enjoying the sunshine and the blossoms! And, the blossoms reminded me of the flowers that we made at my last team meeting so I thought I would show them to you. We used the Creped Filter Paper (#126393) that you can find on page 6 in Stampin' Up!'s Spring Catty. It is only $2.95 for a total of 12 sheets ~ lots of flowers!
We cut out a variety of shapes using different flower shaped framelits, laid the shapes on paper towel (overlapping is fine) and then sprayed them with four different colors ~ Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie. Here are my spritzers ~
And here are the flower shapes after being sprayed ~
When the shapes are dry, they dry very quickly, layer them randomly by size and insert a small brad in the center using your paper piercer ~
Take each of the layers and 'smoosh' it up with your fingers. Here is the final blossom attached to a gift certificate holder ~
I will be demonstrating this technique at Bernie's Stampin' Up! party in May. If you, and your friends, would like to learn the technique give me a call ~ let's set up a party ~ I'll do all the work and you have all the fun!
