So November is full of birthdays... This is one I made for one of my BFF's, It was her 39th ( really, not an again) Her favorite colors are pink and black... And it had to be fab.
So I started off with a large flower from the Pretties kit, Melon Mambo ink (refill) and an Aqua Painter. I took lots of pics so I could share my process with you.
So to color the flower you need to pick up the ink with your wet Aqua Painter, I start in the middle of my flower ( because I know it will be covered later, lol)
I get the color on my flower, then if I want it darker I can add more, or the cool thing is that if it is too dark I can get it wet and remove some of the color!
While the flower was drying I took my Shimmer paint that was mixed with rubbing alcohol and sprayed a piece of Basic Black cs, I then used my 1 inch circle punch. See the shimmer?? I used mini glue dots to attach the punched piece to my flower.
I was not sure what I was doing, so I got out my scalloped edge punch and a piece of Melon Mambo cs and punch the edge. Then, I love the Night and Day DSP, so I took a piece of it and used a length of white organza ribbon across the center of the melon Mambo, but it didn't look right...
So I then got out a length of Black 1/2 in grosgrain ribbon and layered it across the center of the Organza ribbon. I so love how this looks!! I used the glue dots to hold the ribbon in place.
Next I placed my fully embellished DSP onto a Basic Black card base ( I attached a whisper white cs piece inside so I could write my message)
Then I added my beautiful Flower...
But it still needs something.... I tried to figure this out for a bit, then I thought I would add a sentiment using the modern label punch... but want to layer it with the larger one that goes with the movers and shapers Bigz xl die ( big shot) So I managed to figure out how to cut it out... was going to be fancy and not use the Bigz die... I know I saw someone cutting out with out it, but it was just easier to use it in the long run ( 5 seconds vs 10 minutes locating the directions....)
What a disaster that turned out to be!! I loved the saying I used, but wanted to use some bling.... not enough room for that!!
So I ended up just stamping my words ( from a little birthday cheer) and using the corner rounder and layering it with a little bigger piece also with the corner rounder....
