All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge - Handmade Flowers

It is time for another All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge. There is a fun prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps shop whether it is any of the wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries. Be sure to link up your project with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10PM EST and only one entry per person please! Today's challenge is to "make your own flowers" for your project.

I love making my own flowers and they are especially easy to do by using the various metal dies on the market. A favorite set is the rolled roses by My Favorite Things. I use a quilling tool to roll them up. When I release the flower from the tool I let it uncurl a bit to loosen the petals. I then put some liquid glue on the bottom circular piece and hold together until it is dried. I also squish the flower down with my thumb to flatten it out a bit to reduce the bulk for mailing. I created three of them, two small ones and a medium one for this card. The stamp is C.C. Designs Nora on a Swing from the Swiss Pixies collection which I stamped onto Copics X-Press It blending card and then colored with Copic markers. All patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose (Gertie) 6x6 pad.
