Joan's Weekly Challenge #15
This week Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #15 is to make a card or project which includes flowers using dies or punches. From the entries in this challenge six Guest Designers will be chosen for a blog hop on May 15th. You may enter more than once so I also entered my Clematis/Church card that I made for my Heartfelt Creations post today too.
I usually always color everything with Copics, but today I branched out and stamped Metallic Vellum paper with Heartfelt Creations Stamps HCPC 3406 - Botanical Floral 1 PreCut Set and HCPC 3407 - Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set and cut them out with Spellbinders Rose Creations Shapeabilities Dies. I used a Paper Blossom Tool Kit and Molding Mat to shape the flowers. I added brads and brown Gala Glitz to the flower centers. I added Ranger Diamond Stickles to some of the flower edges for some sparkle. The sentiment is from HCPC 3308 - Agape Love PreCut Set. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Tattered Rose and adhered it on a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle. The paper is Prima - Madeline Collection and I finished the card by adding some Recollection Faux Adhesive Pearls.
I am really happy how this card turned out. I love all the dimension these handmade flowers have added. I am definitely going to be creating more of these flowers!
