I love the layers on the flowers! Just beautiful and full of texture. Another great Wednesday brought to you by Nichol:)
Thanks for the inspiration! Can't wait to get my hands on those dies!
Awesome challenge. here is my LO :)
I hope I tagged it right.
Those flowers look INCREDIBLE!
OH MY WORD - you are blowing me out of the water with just the preview and the intro paragraphs. I have sticky back canvas! I may get my paint on today. THANKS NICHOL - you amaze me still!! And I love you still! :-)
It's funny because I was just thinking last week how you never really use flowers (I figured because they are a little lumpy for your style maybe) So nice to see a flower on your LO! LOL
Thanks for sharing... great LO as always Nichol! :)

This week I really wanted to play with Ranger's Stickyback Canvas and my Sizzix Steel Rule Dies. I had created this photo collage for this year's January Month in Review layout and it provided the perfect compliment to some fun handmade embellies!
I started by cutting the white stickyback canvas into 4" squares and painting each with the Ranger Studio Paints. If you want to print off your own color mixing chart (like the one I show in the how to video below), click HERE [rangerink.com]. The Studio Paints are my absolute favorite paints.
Once each painted square was dry (I sped up the process with a heat gun), I die cut the flowers, leaves and butterfly using the Sizzix Big Shot and Steel Rule Dies. I found that I liked the results better by painting the canvas first, then die cutting. Cleaner edges. I used my fingernail and a craft knife to distress the edges for a more “homemade feel” before adhering to my layout and embellishing with florals/ribbon/buttons.
