Here's another card that is way out of my comfort zone. I'm so used to using pretty pastel colours but it is good to venture outside our comfort zones.
I thought today, rather than just show you my finished product I would explain a little about how I did it.
For my flowers, I used one of the shapes from Cheery Lynn Build a Flower3...
I used some brown ink (from a stamp pad) which I applied with a small pom pom to the little 'notch' area of the petals. I gave the petals some shaping and moulding and then cut off the little bit of the stem part that has a small hole and then adhered one petal per arm of my base shape.
For the base shape you could use anything that has four arms.. for example, I used a small hydrangea flower..
Now for the centre I pondered on this for some time to come up with something that would be appropriate. I used five tiny daisies that I cut out of brown paper.
The rest of the card: I used the Cheery Lynn Chicken Wire which I cut to make it look a little rustic. I placed two Cheery Lynn Lace Corners Deco A opposite corners. .. Best Wishes (Cheery Lynn) finished off my card.
This is the first time I have ever given any type of instructions. I do hope they work out ok for you and perhaps be a help for someone. Here is the finished project. hugs... Angie
Box for floral card - I have made a video on how I make my boxes for my floral shabby chic cards. I don't have any measurements to give you, as I make the boxes to fit the cards...
