Torn Flowers


On Monday Night at Swap Sisters I learned how to make torn flowers - they are so pretty. The challenge issued after the online class was to make 2 and put them on a card, layout or 3D item. After I made the first one I thought it would be perfect to go on a card to fit the current sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. Here is the sketch:

And here's my card with the torn flower:

I stamped the butterfly from Dreams De Jour in Versamark over the Very Vanilla card stock and then clear heat embossed them. It's been ages since I've heat embossed! I love the subtle, shimmery look it gives.

I made a second torn flower, this time using Bella Rose DSP rather than card stock. Here is the card I put the second flower on:

Cherish card:
Stamps: Dreams De Jour, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Versamark, Lavender Lace
Card Stock: Mellow Moss, Lavender Lace, Very Vanilla
Other: Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder, 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Distressor, Tombow Glue, Very Vanilla Latte Button

For You card:
Stamps: One Of A Kind
Ink: Pretty In Pink
DSP/Card Stock: Bella Rose DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette
Other: Clear Rhinestone Brads (small and large), Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Distressor, Tombow Glue

Please pop back on Friday (if not before!) for the next Art With Heart Blog Hop. There's blog candy up for grabs!
