Le Fleur

I love making my own embellishments, and as I was searching on line I came across this cool tutorial on Swirlydoos .com. Click on the name and it will take you directly to the tutorial.

I gave it a try, and here is what I came up with! I used Diamond Glaze and I couldn't find any stamens locally, so I just drew them on with a white gel pen. I added some stickles as well.
To make the leaves I took green cardstock and decorative scissors[pinking] and cut them out free hand. I folded the leaves in half and inked the edges and the line down the middle. I then used the Diamond Glaze on top and while the leaves dried I manipulated them to give them shape.

Watch for these on some future layouts! Thanks for looking!
