Once all the petals have been "melted", you can create your flower. Alternate the petals stacking as many layers as you want for fullness. You can use either a Tim Holtz Tiny Stapler or a Needle and Thread and put a few stitches right in the center. You can add whatever you want in the middle such as a pretty button or pearl(s).
In case you are interested, I will now tell you all the info about how I created this card. It is a 5 1/2" card. The background is a piece of K&Company design paper. I created a white organza flower but did not want it white. Joan sent me some Ranger Perfect Pearls "Cappuccino" Mist. I love the color so sprayed my flower to see what would happen. I love the soft color. The lace trim under the flower is from a package of Websters Pages trim. Both this trim and the ribbon were white and I sprayed them with the Cappuccino Perfect Pearls. For the filler behind the flower I used some Marianne dies: the "Forest Branch" (LR0150) and both the "Decorative Elegance" pieces (LR0 157). The colors used were pulled from the design paper.
I hope you like this new discovery Joan and I had fun with and enjoy creating your own pretty flowers. You won't want to miss seeing the workshop projects Joan has posted on her blog. You will see this flower on the Pop-up Christmas card they completed. Can you believe she does an all day workshop and it is free. This month she taught many new techniques she learned at CHA and used new products she will be posting to her blog this week. She will have another workshop in October so if you would like to attend, be sure to email her and let her know. She is now having three workshops - Friday, Saturday, and a shorter workshop on Sunday. She always has new techniques to teach and allows you to work many new products out on the market.
As you know, all products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
I will have another tutorial for you tomorrow.
