Another Friday, it's July, the tennis is nearly over, and apart from the fact that it's Candi Club Friday tutorial time - all the weather gurus have promised us a weekend of sunshine, everything crossed that it happens and I will be a happy, happy Mars!
Just a couple of easy steps to this flower, I did find though that it was a little bit hard on my hands and arm, lol - all that Candi scrunching, it takes a few layers to get a good bloom! Glue your circle (any size you fancy) and add candy 'petals' underneath up, build up by adding layers of scrunched Candi and popping a couple of very scrunched bits between 'petals', after a couple of layers keep Candi as scrunched as possible to give some height to the middle of the bloom and some definition also. Leave to dry for a couple of hours and if you wish to 'tweak' petals a little do so when completely dry. If you want, at this stage, you can add a tiny dot of liquid pearls to the centre of each petal. Once created, use however you fancy on your creations or cards!!
I have done 2 very simple cards with just one flower each, have used stamped stems (not hydrangea
stems really but ok!) with leaves and a vase, and double stamped and cut out one of each and over laid for some height and definition on the card.
A sentiment, (I think the Tea Dance one goes great with Blossom download - so versatile), liquid pearls, some pretty pink string and all done, Hope you enjoy........
