MC June/11 - Coiled Flowers


I came across these coiled flowers at a rubber stamp store recently, and thought they'd be interesting to make and real easy... The ones I saw, were made from twine and had a misc circle for a center and that's it. Mine are a bit more involved with the outer layer of petals, but just as easy, & I think a lot nicer BIG GRIN...

I had done the cream toned ones first, but then some of the challenges were calling for red/white & blue, so made the white ones. Finished that card, and went directly into making the second card. I love them both.

They're both using Quietfire Design sentiments or quote stamps - the latest batch that came out this month.

Anyway, click on either card to see all the details and descriptions - both cards are on the same web page. Enjoy

Hi Yogi! What a really great technique and what really beautiful cards! A question. I have started a page with challenges allowing any stamp, etc. I am looking at you lists and wow!
