Best Wishes - Sketch Frenzy Friday

Flooding is still a problem in this area.  I personally have not been affected, but thousands of homes in the low lying areas near waterways have had extensive water damage.  And some of the communities in cottage country are still in a state of emergency.  The rain we had this week did not help matters.

Well, another Friday, and another challenge with Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Hope you will be able to join us. Today's sketch is by Deb Currier.

05/03/13 by Deb Currier 

I just loved the flower in the middle of the sketch and decided to make a crepe paper flower.  I punched 4 of the flowers with the  Blossom Petal Punch and let them soak in water and Tangerine Tango reinker for about 1/2 hour.  While they were soaking I make the rest of the card.

The base card is Daffodil Delight, layered with Summer Smooches designer paper.  I cut a smaller rectangle of Pacific Point card stock, layered it with Whisper White which I embossed with the Honeycomb folder, and then added to half banners of different designs of the same DSP

The 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch was used to create the half ovals near the right bottom of the rectangle. They were attached directly to the DSP layer.

After 1/2 hour, I removed the crepe flowers from the dye mixture and set them on a paper towel to dry.  To speed up the drying time I used the heat gun.  The flowers were then layered with the petals off setting each other, and a Summer Smooches designer brad was inserted in the center.  A bow made of white Baker's twine was adhered to the center of this.  The flower was attached to the panel using a dimensional.

The Pacific Point panel was attached to the DSP using dimensionals.

Here's a summary of the stamp/materials used:
