Textured Flowers

Hello friends

Yesterday Snowflake Snippets sold out speedily.
There will be more on their way, they are proving so popular 
that we are on a little wait with the distributor company!
I will definitely let you know when they are back in stock.

Today is not Christmas although now we are in November I see
the shops and TV is ramping up the festiveness.
Instead I'm introducing you to Textured Flowers.
This is a 7 piece die set designed by Marisa Job 
and the embossing detail is beautiful.

I cut/embossed a selection from white watercolour card, it is fairly thick 300gsm.

Inked with distress inks.

I then spritzed the flowers with water and shaped them.
After some manipulation, I stacked and glued them,
then pierced a hole to the centre to affix stamens.
The only time I really use a glue gun.

The finished flowers, I'll be sharing the full project shortly
but couldn't wait to show you the flowers!

Textured Flowers is in stock and available on the website here.

City working day today but a day off tomorrow...
I'm heading to the Hobbycrafts show in Birmingham.
I'm purely going as a customer which will be nice, I can take my time
and have a good nose at all the new craftiness.
Are any of you going?

Take care friends.
