Screwed Up...

Hiya!

Just a quick post (aiming to get more in mid-week!!) to show you a card I made for the Inspiration Challenge over at SCS last Saturday, and also for our SU team challenge - an Easter card or gift using flowers.

I've been seeing these scrunched flowers all over the 'net lately and have yet to try them myself. When I went to a SU demo's training on Sat in Reading I saw some drop-dead gorgeous examples of these where they had been painted with crystal effects and glitter after being scrunched so I had to case that idea immediately!

The colours I used for the flowers were Apricot Appeal, Blush Blossom and Pretty in Pink. The leaves are Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke (from A Rose is a Rose stamp set). The ruffled border is some Bride DSP that I punched with the eyelet border punch then screwed up and applied wit Sticky Strip.

Thanks for stoppin by today!

Wow! Those flowers are amazing. I've been playing with these myself, but I hadn't seen the Crystal Effects and glitter technique.
