Spring Violets

Well, now that spring is officially here I thought I'd make some flowers. I've always liked the beautiful, vibrant colors of violets and when I saw a picture of a project made with this technique, I knew I had to try it. It was Sage Kimble's project that I had seen that made me want to try this technique. You can see Sage's project here.

To make these flowers I used our butterfly punch and watercolor cardstock. Punch out 2 butterflies. Color the centers with Summer Sun Marker and the outside with Lovely Lilac. Don't completely color the cardstock with your markers. Just scribble along edge and the centers then use the Aqua Pen to watercolor and blend. It's that simple. I do recommend water coloring the centers then water coloring the edges last. Layer the butterflies, connect with a brad (I used black) and glue to your card.

To make the oval and scallop oval layers I used my Colluzzle for the Summer Sun and then cut a strip of Lovely Lilac and scalloped the edge with the Scallop Edge punch. Cut snips into the scallop strip (the bottom edge, not the scallop edge) and lay it on to the back edge of the Summer Sun layer. Adhere with our sticky strip to get a good hold.
Pretty easy card and I really enjoyed water coloring the violets. I hope you give it a try.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me today and I hope you're enjoying our beautiful spring weather.

Have a wonderful day!

Tin Flower Candle Holder

Here's a tin candle holder I made using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Stampin' Up! Flower Folds Die!! This is made with roof flashing from a hardware store. I got a 6"x50' roll for $17.00!! How excited I was when I saw they had it in the 6" width!!! That's the exact size to fit all of our dies and fit in the Big Shot without having to cut it!! I only had to cut the length!! WOO HOO!!! Anyway, I got this idea from France aka Frenchie. No she's not from France, that's her name and she's from French Canada now living in Wyoming. She has an awesome video on her blog that explains exactly how to make this totally adorable candle holder!! Go check it out!

Thanks for visiting me and I hope your having a wonderful day!
