Quixotic Chellenge #25 - DIY Flowers
G'day folks! Thanks for popping by on this lovely Wednesday....and that only means it is time for another Quixotic Challenge. And this week it was my turn to choose the theme. I choose D.I.Y flowers as I have seen so many beautiful handmade flowers that I needed a good reason to have a go at a few of my own.
For my card I have coloured another of the fabulous Mo Manning images that have made it into rubber. And if you didn't know already Elaine is stocking the most recent releases from Stamping Bella in her store. This one I coloured is called 'Bye Bye Girl' and is basically the female version of the card I made last week! She is wonderful to colour...I do love her ladybird rucksack!
My paper flowers are versions of ones I have seen around bloggy land...I can't remember where I have seen them but I saw a tutorial on how to make them somewhere.
So here are my instructions for making the flowers. As I say I saw this somewhere else recently but don't know where. So if anyone else knows, they can tell me and I will happily give credit where credit is due!
1. Draw a spiral on the back of your piece of cardstock or patterned paper. The bigger the spiral, the bigger the flower!
2. Cut out the spiral on the lines you have drawn.
3. From the outside of the spiral curl the paper tightly to form your flower shape.
4. Glue Glossy Accents to the base to secure the flower!
5. Ta da! your flower :)
Finally the papers I have used are Fancy Pants 'Rusted Sun' collection....just stunning papers, with rub-ons, alphas and acetates all co-ordinating. Well worth the money !
Thanks for reading all the way to the end:)
Hope you have time to join us this week at Quixotic Challenges!
