I am looking for your entries to include Hand Made Flowers ( from punches, die cuts etc) with ribbons. Bought flowers and blooms are not allowed on your project, and if you use them you won't be included in the top three.
You can make anything you like from a card to a scrapbook page and anything else in between. Lots of scope there for you to have fun.
We are very lucky to have two sponsors this time:
who are giving our first place winner (chosen by our DT) this lovely prize of the latest Bev's Bag (available from the shop soon) of teddy bear ribbons.
and Paper Pretties
who are giving the second place winner 6 digi images of their choice.
Here are the Design Team Examples using images supplied by Paper Pretties:-
Suzie used Fan-tastic Sophie and made a wonderful flower to match the designer printed paper on this stunning card.
Margreet used "1960" on her lovely vintage altered note book, and said: The flowers are die cut with a Doohickey die (Magnolia), as are the leaves, the roses on top are bought ones. We let Margreet off as she is our guest and we are happy to have this gorgeous make, but challenge entries must not include bought flowers or they will not be counted in the top three.
and the regular Design Team:
I used the "Flourette" image and one of the accompanying sentiments from our sponsor, this is so cute with the kitty stuck in the vase! I made my flowers with Nellie Snellen punches and embossers and added K & Co gems, and a little glitter glue. Image coloured with Promarkers. The dark card is actually plum not brown and matches the ribbon, all ribbons from Bev's Vintage Bag from Crafty Ribbons.
I have used "1960" from our sponsor to make this vintage tag. I used distress inks round the edge, coloured the image with promarkers and then attached a large number of small flowers punched out of basic grey paper. I also made my own rose-like flower from 5 punched flowers, coloured with distress ink, sprized with water, scrunched up and pinned together with a brad. I finished the tag off with pearls on the jacket and hat, and the ribbon attached witha brad.
I used Butterfly Blossoms from our sponsor, which I printed out twice so I could do a bit of 3D-ing. I made my flowers using Woodware punches and coloured with a crimson promarker to match the colour used on the card, then added Stickles Glitter. Paper by Dovecraft
