Just Magnolia week 25 - Special Monthly Challenge - Flowers....


Can you believe that it is Friday already and October! Wow this year is so speedy!

Today we have the start of a new Monthly challenge at Just Magnolia. Which is sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamps. The prize is a gift voucher of $50 to spend in the store.

The challenge for this month is to use a Handmade flower on your project and a Magnolia image.

We have the honour of Michele of My Little Space on the WWW giving us an amazing tutorial on how to make her stunning Handmade flowers. Thank you so much Michele you are truly talented and have given me so much inspiration!

I didn't have any punches to make my flower. So I stamped a flower image onto grungepaper and cut it out. Then I distressed it with fired brick and sprayed it with glimmer mist. After I made my flower I then added distress stickles to the petals. The tutorial I found to make my flower is here and it is by the most amazingly inspirational Wendy Vecchi.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. I masked Tilda onto the rolling pin. The background is distressed with tattered rose. I have added some stickles. I have used some liquid pearls on my swirl. The papers are distressed around the edges with vintage photo.

The Just Magnolia dt have made the most stunning creations and out of this world flowers please do go and check them out!

Thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I will be teaching at Crafts U Love tomorrow and I am so looking forward to meeting up with some fantastic crafters!
