My paper peony bouquet heralds a riot of Spring blooms in ombre shades of daintly named pinks ranging from Raspberry ripple, Strawberry slush, Blushing bride & Pink pirouette the perfect colours for celebrating Valentines & Mothers Day as well as the predicted colour theme for 2014 weddings.
My project was inspired by the gorgeous new 'just need to make it' Stampin Up Burlap & Blooms wreath kit, the the new Spiral flowers original die which is perfect for handmaking your own blooms and the cute little Petite Petals punch. I've also used the new Spring/Summer hostess stamp set Natures Hello for parts of the foliage to add a little green to the pink!
The key to making any handmade flowers is layering - the more layers you use the better the flowers will look! I just love the flower centres from the Burlap and Blooms wreath kit.
