lots of Glue
1 homemade bloom
Yes, I made my own flower! And I have Erum Tasneem and Yvonne Yam to thank for it. Erum is a guest blogger on Yvonne Yam's blog and she issued the challenge to create a flower. She has a quick pic tutorial and I followed that to get this...
Now, at first I was a bit intimidated, because I have tried making flowers before. Then I read what Yvonne thinks makes her Moxie Fab (yes, we all knew it, but now it is official - see here) and I decided I should give it a try. Plus it was midnight and I was wide awake, so why not? My finished product is certainly not my normal style, but I had fun and it really felt good to get out of my comfort zone. I do know that I really should look for those Cosmo Cricket Glubers if I want to make more of these ribbon blooms, I imagine that it would have made the process even quicker (not that it really took that long at all).
Card Patterns sketch #131 it really felt like the sketch was made for my giant bloom! It is also for the latest Paper Players' Challenge, Birthdays - challenge #62.
