The Paper Players Challenge #119 - A Sketch from Nancy with a Paper Camellia!

It's time again for another challenge at The Paper Players & here is my card:-

Nance has created this awesome layout, (which I have rotated anti-clockwise 90 degrees):-


Regular visitors will know that I love to play around with my crafting tools & create different items with them.  For this camellia I have used the small snowflake from the Snow Flurry Bigz die to create the flower stamens (4 layers) & the small, round ornament from the Ornament Framelits die set to create the petals. I folded a piece of white cardstock & placed the fold near the top of the ornament die, to cut a joined pair of petals, like this (I think I had 10 pairs.):-

I sponged ink around the edges of the petals before I misted them with alcohol to scrunch them.  This made the ink bleed softly into the petals & create a lovely natural look.

Here is a close-up of the bloom:-

This is such a versatile sketch, as you will see by the fabulous inspiration pieces from The Paper Players Team.  You can visit each member via these links:-
