Distress Ink Flowers (Dies by Alexandra Renke)
The new line of lovely dies from Alexandra Renke have even ME excited. And I’m not usually one to be thrilled by flower stamps and dies! There are just so many, but I know you guys like them and want to know how to color them. And thus I do. But boy when I find flowers that get even me excited, you know it’s pretty special! See the thumbnails of (I think) all the flower dies in the supply list at the end of the post; I got five of them just to see if this distress ink technique would work. And I used them for my Easter cards – I didn’t have them in time to share before Easter, but Mother’s day is on the way! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.,
Crocuses die – beautiful elegant flowers, and I paired it with a Lawn Fawn stitched hillside die – some of you might see it as snow since we’ve had such crazy weather in the beginning of spring this year!
For size comparison, I’m sharing these photos too:
Tulips…I love the ones with the ripply edges!
Poppies – and in the video I show you a simple way I figured out to make a vase with a little Tumbled Glass ink.
Tendril….For the gardeners…
Snowdrops….I’m hoping they’re yellow, because aren’t they sweet in sunshiny yellow??
