Creative Heart Monday - Dogwood Branches

Happy Creative Heart Monday!!

Today, we are using our Gel Press™ prints again to make pretty pink petals for dogwood flowers.  I have a dogwood tree in my yard.  Unfortunately, it blooms intermittantly.  We planted some bushes in front of it that block the sun and it's too big to move at this point.  So, I'm going to pretend (in this project) that this is what my flowers look like.

I used some acrylic paint and stencils for the background.  Then, made two Gel Press™ prints for my petals.  To make the prints, I used pink and white paint, a circle stencil, and a rubber trivet that I purchased at the Dollar Store.

Here we go.............
