When you are given a challenge to create your own transparency, you have to think about ink and stamps.... RIGHT??? Well I went for the glimmermist and heat gun approach.
Spray Glimmermist all over your transparency and let dry (you can speed this up by using your heat gun, just becareful not to use it too much)
Using your Tim Holtz flower die, or punches or any other flower die you have (or your Tim Holtz die ;) lol, cause really it's awesome) cut a few different sized flowers. I went for 3 large, 2 medium and a small.
Which I didn't photograph (whoops sorry) is to use your heat gun to shape the petals. First (base) petals don't need alot of shaping, just heat enough so that the sides slightly raise and curl. Continue this until you have heated all the petals and with each one into the centre heat them more so that they curl in towards themselves. You want to create a bud effect. Make sure that the larger flowers are the bottom, the medium are the middle and the smallest is the tightest bud
Glue your petals together from the most flattest to the small tight bud for the centre of your flower. It really is that simple. Worst thing, you'll want to make more and experiment with different colours. Plus they are something that you need to see in real life because photos really don't do them justice.
and this is what I used it on the Make it Yourself challenge for Aussie Scrap Source which I was late in entering again.
Little Miss - I know I've scrapped this photos too much lately but hey when you accidently print them twice, I'm not going to let them go to waste. Plus I've run out of ink so I have to make do with what I have. lol. Used some of the GORGEOUS new Prima on this. As soon as I saw this paper I knew I had to cut it up. Plus those leaves... to die for.
Side note: I know that the flowers are nothing new, but I just wanted to share ;)
