DDH9 Handmade Flowers - Week 1

Our DDH Challenge this week, led by Michelle, is to create cards using handmade flowers.  There are so many ways to create flowers, but one of my favorite ways is a simple scrunch method.  I simply punched out flowers or scalloped circles from cream cardstock, sprayed them with a water spritzer bottle and scrunched them up.  When they dry they are stiff and look like flowers.  I added glitter glue to the centers and silk leaves.

The stamp set I used on my card is the DDH image Cherry Blossom Bird.  The printed paper is the Emma SWIC collection from TAC, and I used some of the Emma cardstock.  The images are colored with Copic markers.

We would love for you to join our handmade flowers challenge and link it to our blog.  We would love it if you use a DDH stamp set for your card. 

Also be sure to check out the other designers' cards at their blogs and see what they have done with this challenge.  Here is the list of our team:
