The Spiral Flower Originals Die has been one of my favorite Big Shot dies. The challenge for me has been doing it justice but I am pretty sure I accomplished that today! I am submitting this card to the Pals Paper Arts color challenge this week, using Island Indigo, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Wild Wasabi. I am also submitting this card to The Paper Players Theme Challenge, using buttons. The button in the middle of the flower has been accented with a large pearl!
I got this crazy idea to take a piece of white felt and dye it with Crisp Cantaloupe ink! I didn’t know before attempting this that felt doesn’t really take on color well but it took it well enough and actually gave it a variegated look that goes well with flowers. And while I was dying the felt I went ahead and did the same with the 5/8″ Organza Ribbon – just to see if it would work and it did! The only thing I decided to change was that Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock was a little dark so I switched to Blushing Bride cardstock. I really like how it turned out! What do you think?
