Polkadoodles Challenge 20 – For Mum

Friday, 21 May 2010

Fliss set the challenge this week, to create a card in memory of her mum. Her favourite colours were blue plus peach/orange. I found these pretty tissue paper flowers online and they are so easy to make. I cut out 2 circles of patterned paper and 6 circles of tissue paper. Then layered them 1 patterned, 3 tissue and repeat. Pop a brad in the centre and scrunch the layers upward around the brad then unravel, to give a nice shabby look. I just lightly inked the tissue to add some colour.
