Recently I came across this great video on how to make kanzashi flowers. I'd never heard of these before, but thought I'd give them a go.
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Classic Fabric Design, Antique Engravings, Scattered Leaves and Messages.
The petals of the larger flower start off as 2 inch squares and these are folded over a few times. On the smaller flowers the squares are only one inch, so they proved to be a bit more fiddly, especially with slippy fabric!
To start with I clear embossed the Classic Fabric Design on white card and applied shabby shutters and forest moss distress inks. The flowers are made from shot silk and I added some pearls to the centres from an old necklace. The butterfly was stamped with a brown chalk ink and I just added some pearls and thread to finish.
I'm submitting the card into a few challenges:
Lily Pad Cards - Fabric\Felt Challenge
Hero Arts - August Challenge
Creative Card Crew - Hand Made Flowers Challenge
Paper Creations Ink - Show Us Your Flowers
