Challenge Accepted…And Answered! #MakeFlowersMasculine

May 26, 2019

I was chatting with Joseph Nguyen from JN Unique Designs on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page the other night and he said “it would be nice if we could make flowers masculine”.

Well Joseph, Challenge accepted!!!

Hope you all enjoy how I created this card. Check out the #MakeFlowersMasculine Challenge on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page going until June 14, 2019 –– you could win a special gift from Elizabeth Craft Designs!

I was inspired by this paper I got at my local craft store. It reminded me of artwork by Georgia O’Keeffe. I got my color pallets from this paper.

First I die cut 2 of each flower so I could have “extras” for fullness.

I used the Copic markers above and colored each piece.

I already had the milk can prepared in my stash-it pays to have things already made.

Next I shaped them on my shaping mat and cutting the yellow center pegs in half so I could get a good base for my pollen.

I assembled the flowers by offsetting the three layers. I dipped the yellow pieces in pollen and put green pollen in center for a darker effect.

Since this card is for my Dad for Father’s Day, I stamped it with the sentiment “Happy Father’s Day”.

I achieved the green background behind punch by cutting same punch in half.

This gave me a “matte” behind my sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my creation. Flowers are NOT just for Moms!

Thank you for visiting and stop by soon for other creations from us.

Happy Crafting!
