simple card

Hi all,

Made this card today using one and only punch i have. I tried doing it in a different way. am happy with the result and with my new flower, i have taken pics of the way it actually started. I am really very bad in explaining things. I actually made the flower and thought it will be well understood with the pics and made the step 2 and 3 again to take the photo. step 4 comes by taking 2 punched flowers and arranging on the step 3, keeping one flower normally and curling the top punched flower inside. And again on top of that i have cut one petal of the flower and pasted the ends. So it comes like a cup easy to hold the quilled punched flower.  Hope you will understand by the pictures. will take a clear picture at day time tomorrow, please bare with these till then.

Punch used
step 2 :I made the middle part of the flower by quilling the strip which has two petals of the punched flower and likewise do it for whole strip.

step 3:  The base of the flower is made by attaching 3 punched flowers folded in half. 

step 4 : on top of step 3 paste two normally punched flowers, leaving the first layer, curl inside the second layer and add the quilled punched flower.

You will definitely laugh at my sentiment. Used swarovski crystals beside the flower. I don't know how the paint drops are made in the case study of beyondgrey challenge but i used tooth brush and a scale with the watercolours :) . Want to mention that none of the products are Indian made but its handmade as i have recently entered into the craft world. collecting all the stuff needed for crafting from India and will get it next time for sure.
