Felt glittery flower

I am sorry the blog has been quiet this week, I’ve been very busy and didn’t get a chance to do almost any stamping. Today I have a card to share with a felt flower. Here it is:

This is how I did the card:

To make the flower, I die cut flowers from the Tattered Florals die, in two shades of pink felt, as well as out of tulle. I layered them with one tulle flower on top of each felt flower.

A button was stitched in the centre and to keep everything together and I added a bit of Star Dust Stickles here and there.

The background is die cut from manila cardstock. I made little pools of Picket Fence, Dusty Concord and Spun Sugar Distress Stain on my craft sheet, misted the cardstock with water and then dipped it into the stains. Loved the chalky marbled effect. I used up the remaining stains with scrap pieces of watercolour paper. The flower background stamp was inked with Dusty Concord, misted with water and Perfect Pearls and then stamped on the background (see the main photo, I forgot to take a photo of this step).

I wanted to add a butterfly and discovered that one of the Mini Butterfly dies fits perfectly for the butterfly stamp in the Stamper’s Anonymous Spring Sprung set. The butterfly was die cut from a scrap of watercolour paper and then stamped with Archival ink Rose Madder, and then again with Deep Purple on the background (to get the antennas). The butterfly was covered with Rock Candy Stickles.

Thank you for visiting! Have a great weekend!
