Hi Everyone, Helen here. I've got another experimental post this month, this time with one of the PaperArtsy flower dies, Scallop Flower. I thought I'd try it out in as many different materials as possible, layering them up, cutting into the petals, stamping on them etc.Here's the finished project using Hot Pick 1305 and two of the flowers:
As you can see, the variety you can get with just this one die is amazing. The cutting that surprised me the most was the felt - it went through it like a knife through butter. With some of the other materials (the calico and burlap) it had to be helped along with a pair of scissors.
As to which is my favourite - difficult to choose - the mix it up version, the half shrunk Shrink, the calico, the acetate, the felt - not sure! What do you think?
Thanks for looking!
A huge thankyou to Helen from PaperArtsy HQ. Wow Helen, this variety of flowers is just stunning, and all with one die. They are such beautiful embellishments that can be themed and coordinated to match any project.
