Polkadoodles Challenge 18 - Make your own flowers....

The challenge this week at Polkadoodles is to make your own flowers! What fun I had with this. I have used the new doodles stamps to create flowers by heat embossing acetate and colouring with Sakura Glaze.
Then layered with eyelet in centre. Made wire stems and leaves with a glass bead as flower centre.

Background of card is stamped with doodles stamps and I have used candy doodle cd for paper to cut 50 and alphas in circles. The flowers each have their own vase made from bendy section of a straw.
Added doodley details to finnish.

If you are heat embossing on acetate - you need heat resistant acetate - I bought mine from Donnas Den its made by Crafters Companion.

Congratulations to the winners from challenge 16 (spots and stripes) :

3rd place - Dolly
2nd place - Aud Cards
Winner - Aunty Nonie
