CCSR - Technique Challenge #2 - DIY Flowers

Here's my attempt at the Clare Curd's Signature Range - Technique Challenge #2 - DIY Flowers.  I made the flowers by stamping the paisley stamp from the CCSR Doodles stamp set 9 times onto the pink check paper from the CCSR The big one paper pad with Stazon ink. I cut around each of the paisley's and then stamped the large flower from the Doodles set onto the jade polka dot paper from the CCSR paper pad and cut it out too.

I then used the X-cut pokey tool to make a hole in the centre of the jade flower and at the wider end of each of the paisleys. I poked the pink papermania brad first through the flower then through each of the paisleys and fanned them out until they were evenly spaced. Then fixed the brad in place. I then lifted each of the paisleys up and placed a 3d foam square between each one, creating some dimension and used a glitter pen to highlight some of the doodling.

The card base was covered with the jade polka dot paper and I tied an Anita's teal organza ribbon around the left hand side of the card.

The greeting (CCSR sentiments set) was stamped directly onto the card using Stazon ink.

Papers: CCSR The Big One

Stamps: CCSR Doodles, CCSR Sentiments

Ribbon: Anita's Teal Organza

Brad: Papermania
