Robyn's Fetish Challenge #156 - Make your own flowers

Hi all!

New Sunday, New Challenge! Time for a great new challenge at Robyn's Fetish! This week we have an awesome challenge theme, MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS. This couldn't be a better one for me, as I use a ton of flowers each month! Some say I use too much, but I just love them! I usually use pre-made flowers from a shop, but I have several different dies to make my own.

Anyway, we have a fabulous sponsor AGAIN, the lovely Milk Coffee Stamps is sponsoring us this week. They are offering 3 digital stamps of the winners choice, so you better enter! Just click on the banner below to go to the shop!

Milk Coffee Stamps also generously sponsored some beautiful images to the DT-girls, so be sure to visit them all! This is my creation.
I made a little box out of designerpaper. I used a template from a Dutch Magazine called Kadoosjes. The papers I used are by K&Company and I have had them for years now. I rarely use them, but I really love them!
Here is a sideview picture. Before I go tell y'all about my handmade flowers, let me show you the colored image first.
Like I said earlier, Milk Coffee Stamps provided us DT-girls some images and I used Tiffany playing violin. She can be found here. Tiffany is colored with my beloved Copics, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E50, E51, E53 and R20 for blush.
Hair: E53, E55, E57, E59
Dress: C00, C0, C2, C5
Flowers: V05, V06, V09 and YG06 for the leafs.
Violin: E53, E55

Now, onto the flowers!
For the large purple rose in the middle I used a Creatables die by Marianne Design. It is just a flat flower, but I used a tutorial on YouTube to make it into a rose. You can find the tutorial here. That weird language she is speaking in is mine, Dutch, but what she does is obvious!

The little purple roses and the bigger green roses are also made with a Creatables die, rolled rose, but you can just roll the diecut into a little rose. You start on the outside edge, and roll your way in, and voila, your own rose!
The leafs are also cut with a Creatables die. To make them stand out a bit more I used some Distress Ink Walnut Stain on the edges.
To finish my little flower bouquet I used some pearl string and adhered in between the flowers.
The ribbon I used on the lid of the box is from my stash.

That was it for today, I hope you liked it.

Now hop over to Robyn's Fetish and join us!!
