Making My Own Blossoms

Sunday, August 22, 2010


The idea for these flowers came to me while looking at my bathroom tiles. Inspiration strikes in the strangest places!
I airbrushed them to give the petals a variegated look. I still need more time with the airbrush system to really get comfortable with it. These flowers are more flecked than I had intended, but I'm not unhappy with the final result.

Hope You had a great weekend!

  2. I LOVE this card! And those blooms are beautiful! I love the speckled look! Did you make the flowers from a die or did you make them some other way? Looks almost like you could have made them from making a few cuts in a square punch out.

    Thank you for sharing!!

  3. Oh they're fabulous - they remind me of those delicate pieces of broken birds' eggshells you can sometimes find and treasure. A beautiful card.

  11. Pretty card! Very different looking flowers but lovely contemporary look to them. My first thought when seeing the picture was 'eggshell' petals. Cool!
