Faux Pressed Flowers

Mynnette's challenge this month over on Technique Tuesday is Faux Pressed Flowers - she has a great tutorial there too.
Take a look at my card and then I will tell you how I made it




I punched my flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch and purple papers, they were layered and glued in place on to white card stock. This was then run through my Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots EF - flat backed gems were added to the centres and it was attached to a pre-scored card.
My main panel has been stamped using my Clarity Bicycle and coloured in using Wisteria Wonder marker pen. A sentiment was added from Simply Said and a trio of punched flowers were attached to the basket.

Getting really fed up with the weather now - it feels so cold and damp I think I may even light a fire!! - See you soon - Jacqueline xx

  3. I'm trying to refrain from putting the heating on! I hope it's nice when the children break up for hols at least. I love these little blooms together with the bicycle stamp.
