Designer Tip: Use the Spice Market white medallion paper as your base. Mat the photo on white cardstock, then Spice Market black flourish paper. Mat again on Spice Market yellow paper. Glue centered. Die cut two large swirls, and two small swirls. Glue to the corners as shown. Stamp four sets of flowers on white cardstock. Die cut with the die. Use the color pencils to color yellow in the center of each flower. Use the dark red to color from the center up the petal about ½. Use the lighter red to color over the dark, and blend up about another 1/3 of the petal use the last two light peach and white colors to blend over the darker color, and carry color to the end of the petals. Color each one this way. Place the petals in the shaper, and run through the machine. It will take a few times to get all the petals done. Use a large ball stylus with a mouse pad to push down the center. This will bring the petals up. Make two large flowers using two of the largest petals, off setting them when gluing the centers together. Place a small amount of the glue in the center, and use the stylus to hold the two centers together, for a minute. Use one of the next size, and glue only centers, and off setting the petals each time. Use one of the next size, and one of the smallest size. Make one medium flower using two of the #2 size petal, offsetting, and gluing only the centers. one of the next size, and one of the smallest petals. Make two small flowers, using two of the #3 petals, and one of the smallest petals. Zot the flowers as shown. Back three of the dragonflies with Spice Market yellow paper. Glue as shown. Place the Dazzles™ as shown.
