Winter Blooms at Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome. It's the second week of the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge and our host this fortnight is the wonderful Sue. Here's what she wants to see for the challenge theme 'Winter Blooms'; "At this time of year the gardens are looking a little dull, so let's take this opportunity to create our own flowers! Whether you make roses or paper daisies, let's see lots of handmade flowers on your projects! Have fun! The winner will earn the chance of a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique."

To celebrate the arrival of the latest IndigoBlu stamps and FlitterGlu/Mega Flake gilding starter kits at The Funkie Junkie Boutique I've gone a touch Oriental with my floral offering for the challenge;


I won't go into a lot of detail now about how this was created as there will be a step by step on Friday over at Frilly and Funkie.
You'll find a list of ingredients at the end of the post. Here's some close ups...





As you can see from these, my focal flower is more of a hand-cut, layered affair rather than a die cut bloom. You can see the fabulous floral creations from my DT team mates over on the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog now, then it'll be over to you!

I'll be back tomorrow with a catch up of the last few days and then it'll be time for that Friday Focus! Hope you can join me again for that.
In the meantime take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
