I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Stamp Fairy Challenge #8

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Stamp Fairy Challenge which is:-

HANDMADE FLOWERS

I decided to have a play and made two grunge flowers using 3 different size punches of daisies and retro flowers. I used 4 large, 3 medium and 3 small flowers attached with a brad and sprayed with water and scrunched. Then I teased the petals open again and sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer spray. I also paper pieced the heart of "Herb" with the same paper which is also the same paper for backing as is double sided.

Take a lookey at the challenge blog to see the other girlies fabulous flowers and to join us.
