I want to Thank Itsy Bitsy for coming up with a Challenge like this for the month of July. As soon as I saw the topic, I decided I am gonna give a try at it… A project with Sizzix product. The twist is to have a tutorial with it. I wanted to use the chance otherwise I don’t think I will do a Tutorial. I prefer doing a photo step by step tutorial coz If It is a video, I need someone with me to record.
Recently I tried this Tattered flowers and showcased this die at Kukies Basket as a design team member. From that day, I fell in love with the die. So I thought it will be easy for me to work with something that I am in love with.
The tattered flowers is a set of four pieces. Am gonna show you now how I use them on my creations. I prefer starting with White Diecuts in paper which allows me to use the lovely distress inks, I use it in paper because I want the papers to be soft n curl however I want it to be.
- Tattered florals Diecut
- Distress Inks (I used Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick)
- Blending tool
- Embossing tool
- Quilling tool
- Stamp(preferably a script)
- Stamping Ink-Black
- A Spritzer bottle (I do not own any mini mister. So I use a Hair spray bottle which I tried some Decoupage on)
I started distressing the Diecuts with Worn lipstick Distress pad and then with Fired Brick for a darker shade. I prefer distressing it both the sides.
After Distressing, it looks like this.
To add Patterns, I randomly stamped on them with a stamp in Black ink.
Now, Emboss in the center for a raised effect and then curl the edges with a Quilling tool (I do it either inside or outside or a combination of both). For ths flower, I had done it inwards.
Align the diecuts one over the other acc to their sizes and secure in the middle with Glue.
Now embellish them as you like in the centre. I have just cut the pollens from their wires and used it at the centre.
Now, The flower is ready to be added in my creations.
I have used these Diecuts in all the following creations this month:
This is the one with a same style. But I had used Pine needles Distress Inks on the flowers.
In the next one, I have done distressing randomly without stamping on it. Have added Bling in the centre.
I used it in Recycled Box
The next one is simple without any Distressing. A plain color Diecut where i used a combination of curling the petals. One inside and the other outside alternatively. To add dimension to it, I colored them here n there. Added a little pearl in the centre.
I have used this flower in a tag below.
In this last one, I Distressed the white diecuts with Peeled paint and Tea dye combination. Sprayed water with a spray bottle. Crumpled it and allowed it dry. And after sometime, I just opened and adhered it one over the other. Finally added a Star charm in the centre.
I have used this in a Money Envelope.
Thats all for now. Hope the tutorial is ok with u all.. Pls leave your comments n suggestions. I have so many ready tattered flowers in my stash now which I will be usingin the upcoming creations.
Happy Crafting Guys..Enjoy!!!
