Hand made flowers ...

Todays challenge over at Papertake Weekly is 'Go as you please with the option of adding hand made flowers' so I made this chrysanth by stamping my new Tim Holtz flower stamp 3 times and colouring with inktense pencils.

I cut the three layers out, omitting some of the petals on each one then stacked them together.  I used a Magnolia die and a Noor Design die for the leaves.  All edges were inked and I added some of the lovely 'Amelia' fine cotton vintage style lace and some honey gold 15mm satin ribbon both from www.ribbongirl.co.uk

I hope you will have time to visit Papertake Weekly - the design team made some fabulous projects to inspire you and as usual, there is a super prize for the winner of the challenge so why not pop over now!

see you soon, Mary xx
