Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to try your hand at handmade flowers. They can be punched, crochet, fabric or whatever your creative mind can come up with.
I made my flower by cutting 3 each of 3 sizes of a 9 point flower shape. After inking both sides, I cut a slit between each point and then spritzed it with water. Then I used an embossing tool to create a cup shape and curl the petals. Once dry, each layer was then glued inside each other to create the flower. Finally I painted it with a pearlized paint although it is a bit difficult to see that in this photo.
This week we have our first Guest Designer, Laney from the Cards of the Week joining us so make sure you check her card out and give her some love. While you are at it, take a look at the fantastic cards our Design Team have created and be prepared to be inspired.
I just want to remind you that March is the Sugar Creek Hollow first anniversary. We have blog candy for you to win (the draw will be held March 31st) and next week we have a blog hop with prizes to win at each stop on the way, followed by an image naming contest.
