Hi, it's Jenny posting today. I've seen beautiful blue flowers on cards recently and wanted to try my own. The blue flowers were cut from the Gardenia Strip die with white card stock. They started out green-blue but became more purple-blue as I added glimmer mist sprays. After drying they were shaped using paper molding tools, stacked and then glued. The background was created by offsetting patterned papers and the trellis is the Shoji Mesh Border.
The chrysanthemums were colored with pink distress ink, shaped with a molding tool so they cupped inward and then pearl centers were added. Distress ink was sponged onto the center of the smallest Horizon Fishtail Banner before gluing the Celebrate sentiment. The sides of the banner were glued down and the center was popped up with multiple layers of foam adhesive so it would arch.
To finish I tucked green leaves from the Flourish Leaf Strip die and swirls cut from a purple patterned paper with the Tiny Fanciful Flourish die into the flowers. The leaves and swirls were cut twice to make the arrangement really full.
