Lilies in Paper and Vellum

Lilies in Basket
My demo in JAPONICA this week was all about Punch craft.

These lilies are made from the small Lilium Feathers punch by Leone Em. I used pink paper -shaded with a darker pink.

The Basket is a die-cut looking very contemporary in white -but cuts equally well in cork sheet -very "basketty". 

I have used a 1" punch by Woodware - Monstera leaf -as I like the round shape of this hot house leaf with a Lily -it works well in green vellum too.
TOP TIP - If you do not have lots of colours of vellum - use white vellum and swipe a BRILLIANCE inkpad over it - let it dry before punching it.  BRILLIANCE dries very well in Vellum and comes in lovely colours -shads of green are particularly good.

The close up shows the stamens inside the Lily.

The support for the flower head allows flower to remain erect on the card and not flatten.

Large Lilies in Vellum

These Lilies were made in white vellum coloured with a BRILLIANCE inkpad -Yellow and Coral. 
The large Lilium Feathers punch by Leone Em was used for these flowers.  Cream vellum is the overlay background on the long white card and the Lilies have been "tied" into a bunch with Ivory Organza ribbon. The Monstera leaf adds another shape to this bunch too -all in green vellums.

Thursday morn 10-30 til 12.30.
