Cosmic Flowers

Recognise those flowers? If you've been over to Rach's blog recently you'll have seen she has a fantastic video tutorial on how to make them. I only had one of the retro punch shapes that she uses, but I tried the technique out with 2 Woodware flower punches and I extended the technique to include the Woodware punched leaves too.

I haven't got around to buying any glimmer mists yet - so out came my Cosmic Shimmer instead and I spritzed (believe me it was a spritz and not a soak) with that instead. I quite like the effect because it looks all pearly. Do have a go at these flowers if you can; they look fabulous up close.

Thanks so much for the tutorial Rach.

Okay, so this card is my DT item for the One Stop Craft Challenge which this week is a sketch that has been set by the lovely Nikki.

And we have a lovely stamp set as a prize this week, donated by Shelley.

Hope you'll get time to join us, and remember to visit the challenge blog for more inspiration from the DT.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
