flower vase card - you make me smile

    Newer Older

    I finally squeezed in some craft time! :)

    This is my take on Shari's paper flowers technique for the Hero Arts July challenge. To make my vase, I die cut an oval from black cardstock, trimmed the ends, and then embossed it with black ep. I shaded my flowers with neon coloured pencils - I just wish the yellow on my middle flower wasn't looking so green, but this was the best photo I got... A side / inside view is here.

    ***edited to add:
    I'm also entering this in the Paper Crafts July 2012 Gallery Challenge and l linked it up to the Shaping Up Blog Hop & Giveaways.

    Hero Arts supplies:
    F5487: small magical flower
    LL169: from the heart greetings
