I mean seriously, is this not the cutest, ever?! And this is where I will insert my "disclaimer"...the writing on these cookies are perfect...mine, not so much! Writing on cookies continues to be my biggest nemesis...even with my KopyKake, I struggle, but whatev's!
Here is what I came up with:
Overall, I was quite pleased with the outcome. I was off a bit on the color of the jar...I was going for a vintage color and it came out slightly too dark, but I can live with it! I am not sure how the original designer's flowers were done, it appears that she made little "loops" for the pedals. I used the same technique that I do to do brush embroidery flowers...just making "dots" and smooshing them down with a paint brush.
Then I decided to kick it up a notch and give the flowers a little shine! Months back I had purchased a new airbrush system and had yet to try it out. It was kind of like when I bought my miter saw...took me forever to get the nerve to use that for the first time too!
Instead of using regular color in the airbrush, I opted to use sheen...pearl sheen, to be exact! Love this stuff...if you remember, I used the Wilton's Pearl Sheen out of the can on my Wedding corset cookies:
See that subtle shine? Love it!
If you look closely, you can see it on the flowers, but the picture does not do them justice!
Now that I finally got the nerve to power up my airbrush, I might have to use it more often! How about one more look:
Whatcha' think? I made these just for fun...wish I knew someone that was having a birthday or needed a flower "pick me up"...instead I am sending them to work with Kelli!
Till next time...have a great weekend!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
