Good Wednesday morning.  I have another  project Susan Tierney Cockburn to share with you today using her new Dogwood die set.  I couldn’t resist trying my hand at pink.  I Googled pink dogwood photos and found this gorgeous piece by Sharon Way-Howard for inspiration and as a guide.

Here’s what I came up with.

I sponged the petals using a small wood sponge dauber with spun sugar and worn lipstick distress ink and a touch of barely banana yellow ink.  I used the worn lipstick distress marker to add darker color to the indented edges of the petals.  I formed and assembled the flowers and   leaves following the video instructions found here.  Be sure and scroll down.

I added the green paper pen to the tips of the flower center.

I arranged the flowers and leaves on the white oval frame and attached with glossy accents.  I thought the flowers and foliage would really pop against the white. I created the bow loops and tail and attached under the flower using glue dots.
