Pansy Punch Art Flower Tutorial and Card

  Carla's Punch Art Pansy Tutorial (4)


You know how I love flowers!!!  Each and every flower is my very favorite.  While browsing the web, I saw a Pansies made from the Butterfly Punch.  How clever!  You can see one of them over a Dawns, Do Stampin’ with Dawn.  Since I’m a One Stroke Certified Instructor, I had to make one the way I paint.  Here’s how I did it...
Carla's Punch Art Pansy Tutorial
Punch 3 Whisper White Butterflies.  Cut the larger ends into tear drop shapes on 2 of the Butterflies, see photo above.  Cut the 3rd Butterfly in half and trim off a little of each edge on the top and cut the top off so its straight.  See lower right, photo above.

Now using your daubers and Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron Ink Pads, color in your petals, by holding your finger on the edge and pulling the color onto the petal, try to pull the color into the center, the way a petal grows.  I held my finger onto the center point of the tear drop and pulled in all the Elegant Eggplant.  I let that dry, turned and pulled in the yellow.  Be sure to leave white space for the yellow, don’t color the entire petal in EE.   Carla's Punch Art Pansy Tutorial (10)

Line up your petals as in the picture above.  I adhered mine with pop dots.Carla's Punch Art Pansy Tutorial (7)
Now with your 1/4” hole punch, punch one in So Saffron and cut off the top of the circle as shown above.  With your 1/8” punch one in Garden Green.  Adhere with a touch of glue onto the center of the Pansy as shown in the upper right of the above photo.  Now add your lines with your black Micron.  You can also choose to match the darker color of your flower. 
Your Pansy center can be done either way, I chose to add a little white acrylic paint from a toothpick, making the “Pansy Smile”.  Some Pansy Smiles are more pronounced than others, depending on the variety.  Carla's Punch Art Pansy Tutorial (3)

Thanks to Stampin' Pretty and Mary F. I found your blog - a new favorite! I've yet to come across a stamper who shares my artistic style until I found you. Most of my friends tell me that my cards are works of art - I think you've got me beat! Lucky is the person who gets one of your amazing cards! Thank you for sharing your techniques and secrets, and keep up the great work!
