Flower making part deux

Hello, what've we got here then?

Ooh, flower making goodies, I think I'll ask Podgy if I can use his pawmade flowers

Now I'll need the wire cutters

to cut this bendy green wire I've threaded through the back of the flower.

Add a few beads and leaves, and wind the tape round the wire, to bind everything together.

Ooh, pretty.

I'll make a flat one too, for a card that can fit into a pre made envelope.

Utilising Podgy's flowers helped me to create these, two cards and one canvas.

I'd like to enter the canvas into Eclectic Paperie's Flower challenge. I dabbed distress inks on the canvas, then added a piece of distressed brick effect embossed card and a fence covered with picket fence distress stain. I then added a Marianne Creatables bird and tree branch die for a finishing touch. Ooh, I distressed the easel that came with the canvas too. This will be going into the bears' present box, ready for a friend for a birthday, or even Christmas present.

If you like challenges, how about joining the bears' literary based challenge? Details can be found Here.

With love from the bears.


  1. I love your flowers. I'd never dream of trying them because they look so complicated. I'd never get them to look as good as yours!

  2. What a great idea, very effective. I love that fence too.

  3. Beautiful work bears. Paw made is wonderful, better than my ham fisted hand made attempts!

  4. These are so fabulous... I love that central one, with the amazing dimensional flower - brilliant work! So delighted you've come to play along at eclectic Paperie with these beauties!
