This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is to use a punch in our project. Well, I don't have very many punches (I prefer using my cricut) but I have wanted to try this technique for a while. I figured this would be a good time.
I cut the top and bottom off of a pop can (with a paring knife) and then cut up the side. I flattened it out with an iron. It didn't flatten out all the way, but when I punched out the flowers you can see they are mostly flat. **Caution, the aluminum is very sharp so please be careful!
I put three colors of alcohol ink on my dabber, dark purple, purple and gold, and dabbed the flowers.
You can see how the colors blend a little. I went back and added more colors after the first coat dried. It dries pretty quick!
Here are the flowers all inked up.
I took a coaster and traced it on the scrapbook paper, cut it out and adhered it to the coaster. I positioned the paper to get the part of the design I wanted on the coaster.
I used gold ink on the edges.
I found this "love" from Home Decor and cut it out at 1" in a metallic black cardstock.
I added some shear ribbon and some clear gems and this is what I came up with!!
