Punch Art flowers

This card was also part of my recent Punch Art class a couple of weeks ago. The class is being repeated on Sunday 8th August if you'd like to come along! There are still a few places available.

The idea of the class is to think of creative ways to use punches. This one shows an alternative use for the butterfly punch. As you can see the butterfly punches were layered on each other to create pansy-shaped flowers. The idea was adapted from a box on Split Coast Stampers by Kiwiinaus.

It's tricky to see but the edges of the butterfly punches were dabbed with Champagne Mist shimmer paint using a sponge dauber to give them a subtle sparkle. The centre of the pansies are simply a clear brad. Simple but effective! Obviously since I love stamping I had to add some somewhere on the card and this took the form of Vintage Vogue. The little leaf print is just gorgeous and sooo versatile. It's stamped in Old Olive to match the grass at the bottom of the card. The darker grass was Garden Green (I think). The leaves were punched with the large bird punch, which I must admit is my most used punch!!

Hope you are looking forward to a fun weekend. Lovely husband has been painting our hall and bathroom this week so we are going to go buy some finishing touches: light fittings, mirrors, cupboards etc. Plus all the pretty pretty things. Can't wait!
