Craft for the Craic ...Spring\ Easter Theme

This months theme was Spring or Easter. For me the first of the daffodils is a sign of longer days and sunnier climates ... well I can live in hope. And since i seem to torture and kill all attempts at growing them- I thought this might be the safer option. Using my tonic punch and stamp set, I created these- very little paper is actually required and its a fun way to use up scraps.

I punched out the individual petals, using the side of my pokey tool I added a bit of shape to them by putting a crease on one side, turned them over and creased the other side at slight angles.  The centres were punches, shaped and layered

For the stems and leaves - I had green and brown striped paper that I cut up, creased and glued into postion, using foam pads on the back of the flowers they were attached to the card
Thanks for dropping by and hope you get some inspiration from this  :)
