Fab'n'Funky Challenges #130 - Make Your Own Flowers

Hi All,

Another week and another challenge at Fab'n'Funky.  Woo!  Check out the blog to see if you were our lucky winner from the last challenge.  Don't forgot those badges too.

Wendy is our host this week and she has chosen a great challenge...

Make Your Own Flowers

You can use die cuts, punches or any other technique as long as they are handmade.  We are sponsored by Doodle Pantry this week.  Check out their website for great images for lots of occasions.

I used the Winter Wishes image.  I just fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  I coloured my image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in the following colours:

Forest Green
Glacier Blue
Blue Grey 1
Antique White

I actually cut my image out with Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty Three before colouring.  The frosting on the trees is courtesy of Flower Soft.  I used their Glitter Frosting with a hint of green.  It has a very unusual texture, with tiny white circles and lovely sparkly glitter.  I used the Flower Soft glue to add the frosting.

I've used two of the Petal Pairs punches in conjuction with the Click, Print, Go Petal Pairs Petites CD-ROM to make my flowers.    I layered these up together and then twisted the petals with a pair of metal tweezers.  I added these with Pinflair Glue Gel.  My red cardstock is from Cor'dinations.

Hope you have fun making your flowers this week.  Be sure to check out the other DT creations.

Happy crafting,
