SSCC Pastel Challenge

P1000688 copy It’s been a little while since I’ve played around with making a hand crafted flower…but once I picked up a couple of the Mc Gill Flower Punches….I couldn’t put them down… and then….I really couldn’t wait to show you what I came up with. The details in the punches for each petal are what really sets these flowers apart.

After I punched the petals and leaves, I added a bit of ink to each petal. When I had the flower assembled, I added a tiny but of Glossy Accents to the edges of the flowers petals and then sprinkled it with Twinklets Diamond Dust. The Mc Gill Flower Punches are available at Stamping Scrapping, along with a very simple and easy to follow video tutorial.

For my image, using the SSD Beaded Ovals set from Stamping Scrapping, I stamped and heat embossed a border for my sentiment from Papertey Ink.
