FFC #196

Hello ladies and thank you for joining me for another Fun Friday Challenge.

Todays sponsor is The Cutting Cafe' and I will be using the  3D cup  which can be found in their store. This cut file was so much fun to work with and there are so many ways to use it.

If you need help with the instruction (like I did) on how to assemble the 3D cup you can find them on the cutting cafe' page. 

I was inspired fill my cup with flowers when I found those leaves while enjoying a fun day outside with my little ones.

In order for me to get the effect that the flowers are different heights. I crumpled some printer paper and add it to the top of the cup.  I positioned the flowers until I was happy with the look and guide them on with tack glue. Learn from my mistake and use hot glue so it instantly sticks. I can't tel you how many times my flowers fell. of because the glue wasn't dried.

I painted my cup with regular acrylic paint. I wanted my cup to look ceramic so I made sure that to leave bush marks when painting. Be careful not to use a lot of paint so the paper doesn't warp.
