I love Martha Stewart Crafters Clay - Part 2

We pick up our story from when I left you to play with more of my Martha Stewart Crafters Clay. I found that it's pretty hard to 'overwork' your clay, but eventually it will not be very happy with you ( if it's a small piece and been left out for a little while), otherwise I had no problems.
The last time I played with any material like this, it was plasticine and I kept expecting to have to struggle with the blending but it was so easy and I had to keep reminding myself, 'this is not plasticine'!

I chose a beautiful green bazzil cardstock and used an embossed, mint cardstock to anchor my flowers.  The corners are made with a Martha Stewart Corner Punch. The right edge is cut from a Martha Stewart scallop and dots punch. I drizzled Ranger Glossy Accents to mimic water.

This was my first attempt at hand-rolling flowers. I really enjoyed making them and appreciate the vast room for improvement ahead of me! When the flowers were still wet I attached them to a flower stem, wrapped some remaining clay around to adhere the two, and then once the clay had dried, I then applied the green floral tape to the base of the flower and the entire stem.

So what are you waiting for? Go grab your clay AND PLAY! :)

Thanks for stopping by,
