Cutest Pumpkin

Hello everyone! Glad you stopped by today :) I know it's been quiet around here other than my DT cards. Not having access to my craft room has left me pretty uninspired lately. I'm still doing what I can, but squares and circles get a little boring after awhile :) I bought a new punch last weekend though, and wanted to try it out. Not a fancy punch...just a 5 petal flower, but I miss making my roses so much that I had to get something to help me out with that. So I bought it...and another one that's a little bit smaller :)
Isn't she cute?  I just love this Saturated Canary image.  This is Cinders, colored in with my colored pencils.
I printed off the yellow chevron paper from my digital stash.  It printed pretty good...I think because it's a lighter color than what I normally try to print.
My new punches were used on the flowers, more specifically the center roses :)
I cut out the large daisy from the Anemone Spellbinders die set and inked the centers in yellow.  Then I punched out 3 layers of the 2 flower sizes that I had and inked around the edges/centers.  I saw a little tip somewhere in blog land about using a brad in the center when constructing roses, so I gave it a try this time.  It worked pretty good!  I've learned to be patient when making these little tiny roses.  The glue has to be quite dry before I can add the next layer, otherwise I crush the whole thing and have to start all over :)

Once everything was dry, I glued them onto the centers of the daisy and added some star dust stickles.
The image is cut out with an Oval spellbinders.  I used my scallop scissors around the edge and then added lots of gems around the frame.

I really love the black and yellow together!  Just so eye catching :)
I'm also a guest bar-tender at Raise the Bar this week!  Check it out! <3
