Welcome to Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #60! This week we're doing something a little different and challenging you to create handmade flowers. There are no other restrictions, so show us your floral side!
As you probably noticed by the variety of blooms in this post, I had a blast with this challenge. It was my incentive to finally try my hand at those gorgeous paper roses I've been seeing everywhere. I decided these beautiful roses only needed a CAS background to showcase them, so I used Clean &Simple Stamping's Fall-To sketch #108 with its fun circle shape.
My favorite tutorial is HERE, although I ended up using the Tim Holz dies because I was unable to find the punch Nathalie used for her tutorial. I like the way this style of rose turned out, as you see from my abundance of paper blooms:
Another paper flower is the spiral rose which reminds me of the Floribunda style of rose (yes, I had to look up that class of rose!). It's a super easy flower to create; check out this tutorial by Wendy HERE:
Here's another type of paper flower that uses a scallop circle for its creation. Mercy has a great tutorial HERE:
Finally, here's a super easy way to create a gorgeous bloom with paper tole which is basically just stamping the same image several times and pop-dotting each layer for dimension. My technique-savy buddy, Deb of Freckle-face Printworks, introduced me to this technique and sent me the supplies to give it a try.
It was a little difficult to get the focus clear on all the layers at once, but you get the idea:
