Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 112

This week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge we had to follow a recipe - one circle, two papers and three flowers.

I made this card using some leftovers from a class taken by Anita M at Cardinal Colours, I think the papers are Basic Grey Eva

I made the flowers myself using a woodware sun punch and L-Em.com stamen punch as taught at the Jane Gill class that I took a couple of weeks ago at Cardinal Colours.

As I had made a load of these flowers I decided to make another card as I still had some of the patterned papers left over, so came up with this one

I used small wedges of rolled card strips to tip the flowers around the central one at angles, it works pretty well - here is a close up

The leaves were made using a woodware oak leaf punch and I used a sharp tool and moulding mat to add the veins and shaping to them.

This is the class that Anita did back in either April or May - I always save my scraps from the classes for my cards

You can see some of Anita's fab work on her blog Inkyblossom
