MHK Designs Challenge #3

     Welcome to our third challenge at MHK Designs, this one has a definite Easter feel to it, but if you don't want to use bunnies then we have some gorgeous colours to use instead.
      If you wish to give an Easter gift that will last for years then why not try making paper flowers with the any of the MHK Designs paper sets.
     I have used the papers from Egg-cellent Easter for this project and altered the colours by playing with my printer settings. I really wanted to use the bunny papers again to go with our white rabbit prompt.
     The centre rose is die cut with a Spellbinder spiral flower die, the edges are coloured with Distress ink Spun Sugar. There are three flowers all made using Sizzix Tattered Flower die cut shapes curled and folded, then stuck together. The three origami flowers are known as Kusudama, you can find many tutorials on You Tube for these.
     Each flower is on florist wire so when dry I gathered them into a bunch, they looked nice but needed some leaves. Tattered leaves Sizzix die was used to cut from silver paper several sets of leaves. Each leaf has had veins scored into it before being stuck on to wire.
     Once happy with the bouquets look the flower stems have all been taped together with green florist tape. The bunch still looked lacking in something so I have added two doilies die cut from silver tissue paper just under the flowers and taped them to the stem.
     Ideal flowers that don't need water, will never die and don't cost a small fortune, they can even be posted in a box to friends or relatives miles away.
     Please come and join us at MHK Designs for a fun challenge, you don't have to use MHK Designs products but we would love it if you did. By entering the challenge you have the chance to win a digi stamp set and a paper set too.
