Floral Profusion

As the name suggests, this post is all about flowers ;)

Second post of the day, dedicated to Floral Profusion challenge #114 (A Floral Profusion HANDMADE FLOWERS) being hosted by, Crafty Cardmakers And More.
This is a quick post, short and sweet! (I'm running short on time, the challenge is about to close, need to enter this)

Without further delay, I present my piece of art...
All these gorgeous red flowers are hand made using cardstock; not paper but cardstock. It was difficult to mold cardstock, and yes it made my fingers ache, but the results are amazing. The petals are a lot stronger, they don't tear or bend easily. 

These are keepsake boxes, ideal for gifting trinkets.
Hope these inspire you too!

Happy crafting!

Tag: Soul Mate

"New Beginnings", is the April challenge at Country View Challenges, and that is the inspiration for this tag. To me, new beginnings is a whole lot of things, and though there are several occasions in our lives that qualify as new beginnings, love, is what all these events revolve around.

So, my entry too, revolves around love!

The colors are inspired by Vintage Romance (which was the theme for a Tag Swap which I had intended to participate in). The roses on the corners are drawn and colored with pencil, while the background is stamped.
A vellum heart is layered over cardstock and glittered vellum.

A distressed layer is stamped with 'soul mate' and some bling added for detail.
and that is about it!

Happy Crafting!
