"Bee Yourself" is a wonderful way to start the New Years don't you think?
I hope to create my art this year that will always be true to myself, make the things I love and always try to inspire my fans.
Today I sharing a technique I hope will inspire you to try.
grab your Eileen Hull's Embossing Folders, some of your favorite paints and a brayer.
Begin by putting small dots of paint on a craft sheet and blend with brayer.
Apply to inside of embossing folder using brayer.
Carefully lay a piece of white card stock to top of prepared embossing folder.
Place inside of die cutting machine to emboss.
Remove paper and allow the prepared paper to dry.
Ink over top with distress ink using blending tool.
Adhere black and burgundy card stock to base of card.
Add prepared embossed card stock to top of card base.
Stamp image to burgundy paper with Ebony ColorBox Blends.
Die cut Romance Flower and Spring Leaves from pattern paper.
Ink edges with Nutmeg ColorBox Blends.
Mist prepare flower and leaves with water.
Crunch up a bit and form them into crinkly flowers parts.
Twist wire using Twist and Style Tool.
Wrap around a small dowel to curl.
Die cut button jar from chipboard and pattern paper using Button Jars and Label Die.
Adhere paper to top top of chipboard.
Place on card with pop dots.
Cut wire to place behind jar to for stems.
(Only adhere the bottom of the stems, bend the top part up so they will be in the air.)
Stamp "Bee Yourself" using ColorBox Ebony Ink onto pattern paper banner.
Add prepared banner to top of card.
Layer flowers together.
Add to top of wire.
A closer look so you can see that the flowers are added to the top of wire so it will give a more live like poise, instead of them laying flat on the card.
Add inked label to front of jar along with a fussy cut butterfly from the pattern paper.
