Make great flowers!

for my Spoonful of Sugar 'Recycling' card I used some scraps to make my own flowers, these came out better than I anticipated so I thought I would share it with you!
First punch out your flower shapes.
Next stamp on them (I used a script stamp) and ink around the edges.
Snip into the middles (but not right into the centre) with a pair of scissors.

Sit your flower on a spongy surface, I use a soft stamping mat but a thick mouse mat would do.

Use an embossing tool and make circular movements on each petal to give the flower some dimension.

You can see there is quite a difference with not too much effort!

must try this. Gotta go in the cellar to find my punches now. They look really effective and a cheaper option to the prima ones too.
