Thank you everyone that joined in with the Handmade Flowers challenge, we had some beautiful creations. The latest CRAFT-ROOM challenge is Diecuts and Punches and has been chosen by Nikki.
I started by cutting a cardboard ring and wrapped strips of patterned paper round it. I then covered some card with some sticky backed aluminium and cut 7 of the large Poinsettia flowers and 7 of the next size down and 7 leaves. I covered the flowers and leaves with a black acrylic dabber and wiped of the excess paint just leaving black paint in the embossed areas. I coloured the flowers and leaves with Stazon. I attached a small flower to one of the larger flowers and then adhered them to the cardboard ring, then I adhered the leaves. I wrapped some gold ribbon round the wreath and made a hanger and bow. I adhered some gold beads to the centres of the poinsettias. The last thing I did was to shape the petals and leaves.
I'm looking forward to seeing your creations and don't forget to be eligible for the prize draw you must have the CRAFT-ROOM logo in your sidebar.
