Funky Flower

Another card made with For The Lads colour collection on the new Funky Hand cd Funky Word Books.

Quite easily made - I used a compass for the circles, roughly ripped the shape, feathered the edges and then inked them. Then layered up the flowers and added the wire embellishments and the button to hide what was underneath!

The curled paper was easy to do - cut thin strips and then wind them around a pencil or something thinner. The 'beads' on the wire were made by shaping some offcuts and then wrapping them again arounda pencil with the end glued.

The stems have been stamped with an acrylic Studio G stamp which is really for ornate corners but I picked the stamps that looked more like stems and just layered them up.
So go and buy your copy of Funky Word Books - its been on sale 5 days!!
By the time you read this, and if Mr Blogger is playing, I shall be on my holidays! I have a few posts scheduled for whilst I am away, but I shall be back on Sunday 24 May with hopefully, some holiday photos to share!
