Yeah, it's a little busy, but that's only because I messed up on a few things, and it got busier as I fixed them. FYI - The card was totally
It all starts with this punch:
I used the wing shape for the petals and the leaf shape for the stems. Punch 3 wings from your color of choice:
Here I have the blue ones I mistakenly punched thinking Dreena's loooooong list of required colors included blue, but I was mistaken, so these became my demo wings.
Notice how I have the bottom two with the shaped part facing each other? That makes a nice little frame on the front of the flower. I stuck them together with a mini glue dot:
Then I just stuck the third petal behind them with another glue dot:
I stuck that to the green stem, covering up the top two leaves:
This gave it some stability, and also lets the bottom leaves look like they frame the flower.
I also switched the stems so some faced the other direction:
I used the Ornament punch to make the vase - I just lopped off the point on the bottom. I positioned the stems while looking at the vase from the front and taped them down, then I put a bazillion Dimensionals on the back:
It looked nekkid, so I thought I'd add two green wings/petals as leaves:
But THEN, OMG, I realized the grievous error of my ways. I went to my stash of Every Color SU Card Stock and retrieved a piece of Almost Amethyst to use as the base (Have you ever seen me use Amethyst? Nuh-uh.) which is when I realized I'd used Pale Plum for the purple flower instead of Amethyst. ACK! Well, I was, after all, working out of a dimly-lit box of every color scraps, so I could be forgiven for this boo-boo, but nooooooo, I wanted to do it right, so to fill in those spaces, I punched more petals and stems and ended up with this:
Yep, that's how I roll. I'm not sure The Ladies will need to make all of these flowers, even though *I* did in order to meet the stinkin' loooooooong list of colors in the challenge. (Oh, Hi, Dreena. *waves*)
That's it for today. I need to go finish up my (cover your eyes, Dreena) taxes and maybe do some other delinquent paperwork around here.
Thanks for stopping by!
