This layout is for the current challenge at The Lollipop Ladies is Boiled Lollies with the added challenge of curves. Here is the inspiration photo.
No holiday in the USA or Hong Kong is complete without a visit to See's Candies - this photo of my sister was taken at their Ala Moana store in Waikiki when we were there in December, last year.
I searched my stash to find a suitable patterned paper (PP) and I think I was successful in matching the colours and roundness of the boiled lollies. I freehand cut the curved borders. I handmade the flowers by using scallop punch and punching out 5 in PP and 1 in cardstock (CS) then using small hole punch in the middle of each one. The PP punches were then wet with water and scrunched up and then applied to the CS shape with a blingy brad and manipulated into the flower shape. Here is a close up of the flowers. I love this technique and they look good on cards, boxes, frames etc.
I think that they ended up as little boiled lollies - do you?
Have a good weekend, it is my brothers birthday so I am off to make him a card - but alas no flowers on his - I think cars, boats etc. I will post the card after I have given it to him. Margaret
