southerbreezes challenge april 18

challenged to make a card with our favorite color (pink) and technique (currently squished paper flowers)

on the first the background is stamped with a dahlia stamp from PTI and embossed. when dry, i covered it with gluestick glue and then patted on a crumbled piece of tissue wrapping paper....smoothing it to look like faux silk....which is difficult to see here.  the flower is made by punching out 3 flowers (papershapers punch), spraying with water, spray starch and then drying with a heat tool.  i punched a small hole in the center and inserted "stamen".  that flower is placed on a dahlia (stamped and then cut) flower.  i sprayed the concoction with "smooch" pearl spray and then used some diamond dust. hello is a PTI stamp.

second card's flower is made with an original sizzix die cut flower using the same technique.  the background cardstock is from Nana's nursery  pack.....stamp from PTI.  a bit of lavender ribbon finishes it off.
