Five for Friday

It's time for another Five for Friday feature at Tammy Tutterow's blog!  Today I used a set of Tammy's floral dies and some crinoline and distress inks to make a flower and a sort of modern vintage card.

supplies: white and periwinkle cardstock, Tammy Tutterow Frayed Posies, blueprint sketch distress ink and water, leaves from Pom Pom Posies, twisted citron distress ink and water, crinoline, stamens, Tim Holtz Doily embossing folder, Taylored Expressions Fancy Banners 2, colored with markers.

It was really fun to make this flower.  I first cut out 4 or 5 layers of each of the 2 flowers in this set from crinoline, then smooshed ink onto my kraft mat and spritzed it with water.  Next I pulled the flowers through the ink until I had the periwinkle color I wanted.  They were then set aside to dry while I made the leaves in the same way.  When everything was dry, I used a thick needle to pierce the centers of each flower, then pushed through the stamens.

I decided to frame my flower with an embossed doily and added this pretty banner as my sentiment.

Be sure to visit Tammy's blog to see what my teamies did this time!
