Inkspirations Challenge #84 - Daffodils in 3D!

Boy oh boy, you might just need a pair of sunnies for this week's Inkspirations Challenge colours, lol:-

Well, seeing as Spring is just around the corner, I thought I would "grow" some daffodils:-

A while ago I was making some paper roses, (the gorgeous ones created by Joanne Leddy - look HERE for Joanne's tute), & during the process I thought, hey with a bit of tweaking, this could be made into a daffodil, so here is what I did:-

Now IRL daffodils actually have six petals, so I have since made some more.  I will put up a tute with some step by step photos during the week if anyone is interested in making them.  :)

These blooms are very 3D! 

So I had to make a matching box to post the card in!

Hope you can join us in the challenge this week.  Please make sure you go check out what the rest of the Team has done with these rather LOUD colours, lol:-

Card Components:  
I'll list them when I post the tute next week.  :)

You have used these colours beautifully, Helen; and I agree with Lynne - they're not THAT loud, my friend! I love the centres of the daffodils. I look forward to your tutorial :)
