Flower Parade!

Flower Parade - that's the theme of the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio this week.... your creation is to use your own  handmade flowers as well..... here's what I came up with for you!

Ingredients used: White Cardbase; Cardstock (for flower) - Bazzill; Deco papers - K & Co; Markers - SU!; Glaze Pens - Sakura; Baby Pink Pearls - Kaisercraft; Giant Rhinestone Brad, Mini Brads - unknown; Lace, Green Ribbon - local craft shop.

After colouring the image, I added glaze pen to the flowers and ribbon bow... also adding dots (already in the image).   I fixed the image to the DP layers with mini brads, then added the layers of lace and ribbon.  The handmade flower component was created with punched flowers - three of the same, the centre a lighter yellower (for some reason, the flower came out REALLY orange in the pic!)  To create 'stamens', I used the same image shape, but cut the petals shorter, then snipped into each petal, into three or more strips - leaving some, removing others.  I rolled the petals to lift them, and cruched the stamens after adding the brad. 

The image I used is "Put on Your Party Dress" and is available at the MPS Etsy shop.... and until Thursday midnight (PST - California time) there is a whopping 50% off all the images!  That's of the price, you're not buying half an image!

I hope you'll join in the MPS challenge with us this week.... it's so much fun to make flowers!

Very pretty Pauline. Photos rarely do justice to our creations. I love your flowers. I like that you added a pearl necklace to the dress stand and added the dark pink dots. Very pretty.
