Here is my current LO for Color Combos Galore. I don't use a lot of purple on my pages so this was a bit of a challenge for me. I used a piece of corrugated cardboard to stamp brown paint onto the background. I had fun hand-making the flowers using a technique that I learned from Sue at Scotty Craft. First dye a length of white silk ribbon using Tim Holtz distress stains. Punch a 1.5" circle from cardsrock and run it through a xyron machine. Start to coil the ribbon around the circle working from the outer edge in towards the centre, pleating as you go. Add a button or gem to the centre (I used prima flower centers for mine) and voila, you have a beautiful silk flower.
