The challenge over at SPeedy the Cat's Friends #41 challenge this week is to use a self-made flower on your project. For my flower I used some SU! newsprint dp and punched 3 scalloped circles. I added some color to them with tattered rose and fired brick distress inks, then snipped each scallop about halfway into the center. Finally I curled the "petals" and twisted and crushed them in my hands until I got the look I was going for. I folded some creamy brown cardstock, then ran it through a crimper, and hand cut the leaves. For the final touch I used some silver spray smooch for a little interest. All of the DP is from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby stack, and I used a piece of velvet ribbon along with the Fleur de Lis punch for the border. The sentiment was done with Spellbinders fancy tags and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
I hope your Thursday is going well for you so far and I'm glad you took the time to stop by. Make it a great day!
