Handmade Flower, the Hero Hues Way

Happy Labor Day!

I was making some paper flowers yesterday and thought to myself, instead of using punched shapes, why not use the beautiful paper flowers from the Hero Hues Line?



I made the flower on this card by taking four of the Sunshine Print Flowers, two of each size, placing them on top of each other and attaching with an orange brad. I then sprayed them with water and scrunched each layer up and around the brad. Then carefully pulled each layer open again and sprayed with perfect pearls. After the flower was dry, I added a bit of shading to some of the tips with brown and orange inks. I also used the Scroll Label. I love this stamp! It can be used in so many different ways and for many different occasions. The tiny acorns are from the So Thankful set. I stamped, colored and cut them out to place near each corner of the scroll and I just had to add Glossy Accents too!

I've got quite the busy week ahead. Just hoping I can keep up and get everything finished on time! I'm so glad you stopped by today! I really do appreciate it! :)
