Craft-a-Flower: Sweet Violet
For my Viola odorata, I wanted highlight the velvety appearance of the petals. I started with two mixes of crisp dye ink. I used the Enchanted Garden and Northern Shore for the purple and blue flowers, respectively. I ink blended each layer to get a gradual transition between layers for a smooth appearance.
As for the foliage and flower bud stem, I used the Nature’s Wonders ink family. I used the same large ink blending tools to get a gradual gradient. To give these leaves a little texture I pressed a moistened paper towel to the inked cardstock to bleach the ink.
I arranged the die cut leaves and flowers over a grey ink smooshed background. I took a sentiment from Paint-a-Flower: Rose to finish the flower arrangement (ALT). I also added coordinating grey splatters to complete the card project.
