Mondays are Technique Challenge days on SCS. Today is the Dahlia folding technique. Very cool!!!
I did mine a little different. I used a 1 3/8" circle punch as recommended, but then I used the Martha Stewart 1" scallop punch and did much smaller petals. I tried fitting all 8 on the larger, but it took away from the drama already present in the large flower. Instead, I added 4 of the petals, and I set the other 4 aside. I stamped the large flourish from Baroque Motif and addded the left-over petals but by this point I lost one of the petals *sigh*. I still have no idea where it is. It can't have gotten far - it has no legs! My stamping space isn't large and it was almost clean. Beats me!
I used my stardust glitter pen quite liberally. If I get a new camera for my birthday, I'll be able to show shine much better, I think. In the mean time rather than lamenting that, "it's so shiny IRL blah blah," I'm considering it a private, lovely thing between the recipient and myself.
Here's the link for the Dahlia fold. I highly recommend it!
