My Creative Time: Designers Challenge

Good Afternoon!! Well my mom and I stood outside Saturday morning in the cold for the grand opening of the new craft store in town. I bought some shiny paper and a paint brush to use for watercoloring but the prices were a little steep for me to buy anything else!! I think I will stick to my online shopping for craft supplies!! I did buy bic mark it markers from Walmart and used them on the weekend and really like them, I am waiting for my spectrum noir skin tone markers to come in the mail so that I can colour in images of people! Well there is another challenge going on over at My Creative Time " 3 homemade flowers, bling and yellow, blue and brown"

These colours are not ones I normally work with but I took on the challenge:

What I Used:
My Creative Time: Hello Spring
Memento Ink: Rich Cocoa
Spellbinders Shapeabilities: Flower Creations Three
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Baby's Breath
Flower Punch
Hot Glue Gun
Stickles: Golden Rod

I love the look of the flowers and they are so easy, four flowers punched out, pinch each petal down and layer them glueing each layer down and pressing the centre using a pointed end (a pen will work). Challenge ends on October 23.

Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!
