StampFairy - handmade flowers

We have a lovely challenge at StampFairy this week:) We want to see you make your own flowers!! They can be punched, ripped, crushed, glittered, moulded etc etc etc. I decided to use a heavy card for my flowers. I have always used paper or tissue or crepe so thought I would see what effect I would get with card. I drew 3 sizes of circles for each flower, cut out with ragged scissors then soak with a squirt of water. I then squashed them, dryed them and opened up again. I assembled them with a brad and added some glitter. They look good in real life so was pleased enough with them. Hope you all get time to have a wee play yourselves and join our challenge this week.
