Make Your Own Flower

This week at Fairy Fun Fridays the challenge is to Make Your Own Flower, I chose to use a scallop flower punch, cut in on the petals and then shaped the flower.  I then chose a three flower punch and added the middle layer and top layer in different colors to emulate a poppy.  If you are wondering what I did to my image Watering Can to get the effect, I used UTEE on Basic Gray cardstock from Stampin' Up and it turned out this blue metallic look with a beat up look as the UTEE didn't go in all spots.  I went over the lines of the image with a thin black marker.  The poppies in the vase are colored and popped up 3 different times showing dimension, I left out the flowers in the background more with each layer.  You can get this image at Praire Fairy Designs and create your own.  Don't forget to enter at the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge for your chance at prizes!

Totally awesome card, Kelly. I absolutely loved that watering can from the moment I saw it. I really thought you had cut it out of some kind of metal. What a cool effect from the UTEE. I'm really hooked on that stuff! Wonderful flowers too - both the punched and the painted.

Hugs,
Linda
