My Big Ole Flower Story
Today I was messing around making flowers with my punches and tried out one of the ones you can make with Scallop circle punches. I used both the large and regular sized Scalloped circle punches from SU. The flower came out pretty decent after snipping each scallop of all the circles into petals, joining them at the center with a brad, and then curving the petals. Pleased with myself, I then decided how cool it would look if it shimmered. And that was the beginning of the end of my pretty decent flower.
After awhile, my flower dried with it's globby shimmer and to me it looked like the poor thing had age spots all over it. But I kept it, played with the shape of it some more and left it to sit and wallow in the misery I had caused it.
Then along came this week's Featured Stamper over on SCS!! YAY Emily (aka Stampingout)!! Emily uses big flowers on a lot of her cards so I selected one of her many gorgeous ones to CASE so I could make use of my formerly pretty decent flower.
I went with a shabby-chic feel for my card to make it seem like I did that aging thing to it on purpose. (Uh, yah, that's right, I wanted it to look like that.) Anyhow, in the end, it is going to be ok I guess and I have Emily to thank for that!! Congratulations and thank you Emily!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
