Hand Crafted Flowers

Good morning all, hope you are all well and looking forward to the working week!! On a positive note we have only 6 weeks until the children break up for Summer Holidays here in the UK.. (not that I'm counting)
Over on Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog we have a real treat for you for the month of June...

Each challenge entry during the month of June will get their name added to a drawing to win a BIG SHOT die cut machine! You may only enter the weekly challenge once but you can enter all four challenges during the month of June for a better shot at winning. The winner will be announced on July 2nd. How great is that!!!!

The Mini, Medium and Large Roses have been die cut from matching papers, I used the crafters tools (the one with the flat edge) place the flower onto something soft like a parchment mat or something similar and pressed down in the middle of the petal to create a fold.  That then creates a point to the edge of the flowers.  

This wonderful flower was created using the Stackers 2 die cut.  I cut this out four times shaped the petals using the handle of one of the crafters tools to make the flowers curl. Inked with distress inks and sprayed with glimmer mist.
