Good Morning Everyone, today sees the start of another brilliant challenge over at Magical Crafts Challenge blog. The challenge for the next two weeks is:
I have tried something different for this challenge - I decided to have a go at quilling again. I love quilling but it does take me so long to do and since I discovered pro markers, everything else has been put away and forgotten. So, I blew the dust from my quilling tool and and started rolling and fringing. I have quilled a Christmas wreath, the red flowers are supposed to be poinsettias. How early of me - making a Christmas card in June! I bet there's loads of you out there already finished this year's Christmas cards!!!
Remember, we are a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card. It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it and you make flowers a big theme on your project.
For this challenge we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and one lucky person will will $10 to spend in the SSS store.
I used 3mm green paper strips for the leaves and 10mm red paper strips plus a bit of 3mm yellow for the flower centres. I fringed the red flowers - it would be so much easier to buy a fringing tool but they are quite expensive and I can't really justify buying one for the amount of quilling that I do. The gold dots are peel off "left overs" and I have just added a simple peel off greeting.
So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cutie Stampers - Red, Green, Yellow
ABC Challenge - Extra Dimension
Paper Cutz Challenge - Circles, Squares or Stars
Thanks for stopping by,
