Scallop Circle 3D flower- 1 layer spiral rose


This is another 3D flower I have been playing with. The colors look a little off here but is really pretty in person.
Rose red CS base with barely banana CS embossed with perfect polkadots embossing folder over the bottom half then scored to create a line as you can see. I stamped the sentiment with an old olive pad then used a blender pen to take off the olive ink and used a rose red stampin' marker to selectively add color (another one of my favorite techniques) .
The leaves are diecut with Little Leaves using the big shot.
The focus this time is on these little flowers, which are super easy to do with just one punched scallop and a pair of scissors.


Take a scallop in a color of your choice and cut out a spiral from between one of the scallops until you reach the center as shown. You could draw it out first if you wanted and it would still be fine.


Start with the center and spiral it around as shown as tight as you can and that is all there is.



This is the final card with 3 flowers (I find tombow multimono, crystal effects, tacky glue et to work better than tape for this though.





closer up view of the 3 flowers - all looking a little different and the side view that shows them just siting down on the card.
I am SO ready for warmer weather!
