Hi Folks, it's time for another challenge over at the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog. This fortnight, we are sponsored by A & T Digital designs, and they will be giving the winner a prize of two digital designs. The theme is to make a project incorporating handmade flowers.
I have chosen to use a piece of Prima 'Firefly' paper as my background, and stamped a large flourish using white embossing powder in one corner. I made a flower using handmade paper, and cut six layers using my Spellbinders Blossom 5 dies. I coloured the shapes with Distress Ink, and then attached them together with a brad. I scrunched the shaped up around the brad, spritzing them with a bit of water. I then heat set the flower with a heat gun. Once the flower was dry, I stuck the flower to the background, and added a metal ring into the centre. I filled the ring with Glossy Accents, and dropped seed beads into the middle. I love making these flowers, using various die shapes and colours.
I stamped a large butterfly using white embossing powder onto white card, and then coloured the image with Distress Inks. I chose a suitable sentiment and stamped this onto a tag which I had also inked with Distress Inks, leaving a white border around the outside. My stamps are all from Stamp Camp, and have been very neglected. This project was a great opportunity to dig them out.
Why don't you pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous projects that my Team Mates have made? Thanks for stopping by, xx
