DDH9 Challenge: Handmade Flowers ~ Week 1

Ready for a NEW Challenge??

Our NEW Challenge is Handmade Flowers. Michelle is our hostess for the next 2 weeks on the DDH blog.

I used a 3/4" and 5/8" circle punch to create my flower.  The paper used is a DDH FREE download Black and White II.  I used a pinched circle flower technique - if you'd like to see a video on how it is done - click HEREHeather Scott made this fabulous video.  I added a second layer (5/8" punch) to make my flower fuller. 

The image is DDH Swans.  This is a great image for an anniversary or wedding card. I colored the white floss with Copics to match the cardstock.
Supplies-- Digi: DDH Swans, Papers: DDH Black and White II, Raven, Whirlpool, Copics: N1, N4, B000, BG10, Bone Floss, Buttons, White Souffle pen, 5/8" punch, 3/4" punch.

Next week I will have another card with a flower made of ribbon.

We would love it if you played along! This challenge is open until 6 pm (CST) Sunday, July 10th. Visit DDH and add a link to your creation to our card gallery and you will have a chance to win a FREE DDH Digi!
