Blog Hop - Day 1!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Blog Hop!

By commenting on this post you can win a copy of Woodland Whimsies CD 1

Yesterday I made a card with some of my favourite elements of this CD:

I have inked the Deer paper for a distressed look, the ribbon is one of my paper ribbons and the greeting punches out with a 1.5" circle punch.

I have also been asked a LOT about the layered flowers since I demo'ed them on Create & Craft so I've done a quick tutorial.

The layered flowers print on one sheet and there are lots of plain and dotty colours to choose from!
Firstly, cut out all the pieces, you can use as many or as few as you want, I like to use 6 and alternate the plain and the dotty:

You can of course leave them like this but I like to grunge them up and distress them a bit! So if you want to do this, scrunch them up (you can wet them slightly first with a fine mist of water or shimmer spray if you want them to look even older and more tatty thna grungy)

The using 2 shades of ink pad - I've used 2 browns, ink them up, when you do this start the inking tool on your craft sheet so you dont get any hard edges:

Then layer all the pieces together and secure with a brad, I like to add a couple of little drops of glossy accents as 'dew drops' here are some I've used in projects:

Thats all from me today! Now pop over to the Challenge Blog where you can win more prizes and click through to all the other girls - remember the more blogs you comment on, the more chances to win!

Thanks for playing, see you back here tomorrow for your chance to win Woodland Whimsies 2!
