out of retirement...
As a part of Technique Tuesday's 10 year anniversary they are re-releasing a few old favorites. This one, Petal Power, has been redesigned to be a little bit smaller and more card friendly (I think I had 3 different sizes of the original Petal Power, the biggest one would span the length of a scrapbook page!)
So the rule of thumb for creating this type of flower is to estimate how many petals you'll need, then add 20 more. Hah! No actually I think there are 24 petals here, but they're easy to stamp and easy to cut out. I used 5 different shades of Hero Arts Mid Tone inks and tried not to over think which petal would get which color. Underneath the first layer is a 1" square of foam tape, to give it a little lift so that I could add some curve to the petals.
Here is the new version of Petal Power
I also wanted to mention that I'm in the middle of a blog makeover. But don't look! Right now its looking worse before it hopefully starts looking better. And I can't get my widgets to work. Boo!
Hope everyone has a nice weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
