non-flower flower (PC)


Have you seen the challenges over at Paper Crafts Connection pertaining to the current special issue?

One of them is to create a flower using non-flower stamps.  Well I don't know if this is exactly what they're looking for (maybe that's why it belongs to the species: reject for this exact challenge in the submission call for this issue).  But I think it's mega cool!


Using DD's highlighters I colored a piece of Neenah CS.  Then I stamped a zillion butterflies from Hero Arts Antique Flowers and Butterflies.  Then I die cut a zillion butterflies!  Created my bloom.  Curved a sentiment to make a stem (cool too, no?) One leaf later the card was done.

Hard to photograph, neon is.  But really, oh so cool!

Thanks for visiting.
