Happy Wednesday- the week is flying (or blowing by- it’s a good job I’m not super-thin or I’d be whisked off my feet in this wind!!). For this week- the challenge is to make a 3D flower. I attempted one and was too embarrassed to have put it on here so tried again and was happier with this version!

This flower is made by stamping a flower from a set by Indigo Blu twice onto Black Diamond metal


This metal is more matt than most of the other types, but either way, its easy to emboss onto it using Versamark and I’ve used some Wild Wasabi embossing powder (Stampin’Up!). There’s a not funny story with this stamp set. I’d put up some stamps and dies for sale & sold this set yesterday. I just quickly stamped two of the flowers before I cleaned them and packaged them away and then this morning Monica (who owns Add A Little Dazzle) asked me what on earth I was doing selling the set.

Yup- silly idea- but its too late, the guy has paid for and bought this set- I’m sure he’ll get lots of joy from it (&, isn’t it nice seeing a man stamper has bought it!!)

indiflowerThe metal is trimmed and wound around a paintbrush to give the spirals & then some strips of black and silver cardstock. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter.

challengepicDo join in- you don’t have to use metal, and there’s a fab voucher up for grabs for the winner- post any projects link to this post and you have until next Tuesday to enter. 3D flowers are brilliant fun creating- the only problem is how am I going to get this in the post?!! I think this will have to be a ‘hand-delivered’ one or maybe I have to make a box to transport in!!

See you soon- stay safe and stay warm!!

    I thinlk Monica was right…but since the guy had already paid. In any case, this turned out beautifully…so texturey (is that a word) and impressive. Don’t get blown away, unless it’s in a good way.

    That is just the perfect green. And on black…again, perfect! Love the “complicated” flower, and the CAS design. LOVE this. Have a wonderful weekend. : )
