This week Jodi is hosting our challenge and she would like to see some flowers bloom on your projects. Actually what she would like to see is for you to create a project with a DIY (do it yourself) flower.
I must confess that I procrastinated a lot on this challenge. At first, I thought I had it all figured out. That was until I sat down to create my card and I realized, "I really have no clue how to make a DIY flower". Thank goodness for the Internet because within minutes I had an overwhelming number of ways to create flowers with paper and ribbon.
My DIY flower was made with ribbon. You can see the how to in this video here.
The image is a digi from Whimsie Doodles called Flower Girl. She is coloured with Copic marker. The paper on the card is Carta Bella Alphabet Junction.
To ensure my flower did not fall apart I did a quick hand stitch in the back and then added a touch (actually a rather large glob) of Glossy Accents. I added the tiny pearl and there you go a some-what rose looking DIY flower!
Do you feel like making spring bloom on your cards. Join us for this weeks challenge over at Little Red Wagon. While you are there check out the DIY creations by the other Girlfriends.
Thanks for stopping by today and please come back soon.
