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.

  1. Oh I just love your card Jaycee! Beautiful ink blending on these lovely blooms and ink smooshing make this a spectacular card!


  2. This is my favorite card using this die set. The flower color choices make them so real I want to pick one. The grey background is just perfect. What a wonderful card!


  3. I also always learn about taking basic supplies, like the parts of a Craft-a-flower, and creating something a little new and different from JayCee. Thank you!


  4. Love the colors. Love the dark olive green leaves is such a great color to frame the flowers. Love the neutral background. Thanks for the inspiration.


  5. Jaycee, your color choices are so realistic. I’m still floating from the last class I took with you! Your indelible mark is beautiful!


  6. This is such a sweet card! I love all the shades of lavender and the leaf and background colors. Truly a work of art (and worthy of framing!)
