Today, I've been spraying coffee filters and seam binding, scrunching, and drying with the heat gun. Ooh, ooh, lots of messy fingers. Love the non stick craft sheets.
There are so many ways to make these coffee filter flowers so the dies or punches you use to cut them out with will make them look all different kinds of ways. First, I sprayed the coffee filters with water, then hit them with some Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, scrunched, and heat dried. 3 Lg. petals, 4 Med. petals, 3 Sm. petals and a tiny brad in the center, scrunched it back up, fluffed and hit it with a little bit of Vanilla Smooch Spritz.
You might be asking about the embossed triangle. I saw a YouTube video on this technique and that was before I started writing down the names of the wonderful artists who share their ideas with us. You'll know who you are if you see this and I thank you for your sharing and your expertise. Now, I brayed Crumb Cake ink on the flat side of the folder inserted the Very Vanilla card stock and ran it through the Big Shot. Now, since I've slept since then I don't even remember what she called the technique, but it does come out very vintage.
I also had to color my pearl stickers with a brown Sharpie marker and dab off some of the ink to get my pearl stickers to match my Coffee and Cream color combo.
