Lovely flowers I’d say!
I’ve been sick for the past few days and haven’t been able to do anything! Puts a damper on a paper crafting blog. I have a few challenges I wanted to play along with but, my stomach had other plans.
I’m back in the game. Sadly, I wasn’t the first to post for Stamping Peaches Paper Challenge. I have been the first the past few weeks – it’s just a quest of mine. They have a color challenge this week, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Gumball Green. Wow, what colors to combine. Fall at it’s best.
So, flowers for me I decided. A lovely fall bouquet that will be perfect for my class next weekend. I have several paper flower collections going. I just love flowers. Paper or real. Except that paper last a lot longer. And, you can really customize the colors.
Here, the base flower is Cajun Craze with an Early Espresso (retired) pattern DSP in the center. I made double flowers with some added dimension. The top flower has been notched out and glued over. I used Tombow, but a glue gun would have gone faster. The centers are the newer 7/8 Scallop Circle Punch. They fit nicely into the curved flower. The leaves are (retired) Small Oval Punch scored in the center, folded and secured in between the flower layers.
I was skeptical at first about my creation. Now that I see it in a photo – I love it! It makes feel better, as flowers do!
Go be creative and make your own day or someones else’s!
