Cherish Card by Corina Finley



Hello! Corina here with you today on this last Friday of June - Time flies when you are creating!

This week I thought I would play with the Black Eyed Susan Strip flower die. This strip die has 4 flower layers - I used only two layers to create this flower. The Die also has a centre for the Black Eyed Susan which I did not use for this flower today.


I inked each with blue ink and then misted both layers with water. I gave the water a few seconds to soak in and then I twisted each petal (pinching the tips) in the same direction. I allowed them to dry and sprayed with homemade glimmer mist.


I then layered one on top of the other and added a pearl brad. I love the look of this flower - so whimsical! I hope you try to make one and let me know how it turns out!

  4. Thank you Ladies for the comments...much appreciated!

    My Homemade Glimmer mist:
    I make it in a reused perfect pearl mister bottle.

    1 part alcohol to 1 1/2 parts water and I use metallic ink.

    I use an eye dropper to add the ink and put roughly 25 drops and shake. Check shimmer and add more if needed!
