FAIRY Blog Hop

Update winner of blog candy
 Patti L: said...
I love what you have done with this digi. Your tutorial is great too.


(Click on picture for larger view)

 Here we are with another 
and there are 8 freebies for graps
if you hop along all the blogs.
Not only do I have this wonderful
fairy with the owl FREEBIE for you,
I also have a tutorial
and blog candy for you.
Click on picture and save as...
with right mouse click.
 On my sample you see a flower embellishment
and I am going to share with you how
you can do this too.
If you leave a comment on my blog
you can win my card and some blog candy
to make your own flower embellishments.
I will pick a lucky person on Wednesday Feb 22.
(Blog Candy)

What do you need to make this flower embellishment?
* a tooth pick
* a flower on wire
* a flat flower
* a hole punch or a prick needle
Decide where you want the flower placed
and hold it down and punch or prick
2 holes next to oneanother in the middle of
the flower.
Pull the wire flower through one hole.
And now you push the wire through
the second hole to the front side.
Take the tooth pick and wirl the wire of
the flower around it. Take the tooth pick out.
Here is the finished flower embellishment.
I also added the butterfly to show you,
that you can do the same tooth pick trick
with wire for the butterfly tentacles.

Now you muct be ready to go to the next blog to
get more inspiration and another freebie.
Please go to Jennifer's Blog
and see what she has in store for you. 
Here you see the flowers again on my card.
The picture is colored with pencils and 
sponged around with vintage photo
and stamped on with the same color
and a Club Scrap leaves stamp.

The background is also white paper sponged with
vintige photo distress and stamped with the same 
Club Scrap leave stamp, but also embossed with a leave
embossing folder to give the paper more texture.

If you happen to get lost during the Blog Hop,
please go to Create with TLC
and see what  blog you have missed.
HAVE FUN HOPPING! 



Have a creative day!

Donna said...

Lovely creation Hetty! Thanks for the flower idea. Thanks for the fun blog hop!

Charlene said...

Hetty this card is incredible! I can't believe that you made your own dp with that stamp and Vintage photo ink! I thought that it was predone dp. And I love how you added the black in behind the image and your sentiment to give them some depth. Thank you so much for the wonderful tutorial on the flowers. I would have never thought to do that...sure makes them a lot sturdier on your cards. This way you don't have to worry about them falling off. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creation and ideas.

KathyB said...
