Less Is More Challenge - Off Centre

I missed last weeks challenge, so thought I had better get moving with this entry for the Less Is More challenge - Off Centre.


As I've mentioned previously, I love my camelias...so I now have a cut file and then I can make lots and lots of them. I cut the petals in plain white, and then brushed the edges with pink ink.  The stamens are held in place with silicone glue, the layers of card were too thick to get them through.  Leaves are a Marianne die, again cut in white and then ink stained.  Square card was embossed and then inked with same colour as petals.

Thank you for stopping by xx

I'm so glad you didn't miss the "Less is More " deadline this week Sasha. This card is simply lovely.
If you could link to your actual card rather than to your blog in general that would be great!
Thank so much!

Ribbon Girl said...

fab card - your flower is beautiful! I bet it would look gorgeous in cut out tissue paper as well! My camelia has not one single bloom - I wonder if it needs anything in particular or do they not flower until they are about 6 or 7 years old? I've had it 5 years - Mary G x
