Get Creative - Week # 47

The theme this week at The Shabby Tea Room is 'get creative'.

The main idea of this challenge is to get creative with your basic supplies (i.e. cardstock, ink, stamps). For this challenge, you can consider such things like ribbon, lace, buttons and brads - basic supplies. Hand make what you can, for example - make your background paper by repeating stamping to make a pattern, or use an embossing folder to create some pattern. Hand make a paper flower as an embellishment. Use your dies and punches to make embellishments, etc. -- do not to use anything manufactured that you can attempt to hand make and 'Get Creative'!

I so loved this challenge and thought I'd have a go at making my first ever paper flowers to use as an embellishment. I was so surprised how well they turned out and will definately be making more of these!

Supplies used:-

Kraft cardstock
White Twill from The Ribbon Reel
Stamps from PTI Polka Dot Basics and Memories of you
Paper from October Afternoon Modern Homemaker Collection
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
