Today's TLC (technique lovers challenge) was to create this Dahlia Fold flower on a card. Some had very interesting interpretations--some very gorgeous, so make sure and check out the fab gallery over at SCS!!
IMO... the outcome of your flower will largely depend on the double-sided paper that you use. I used single-sided paper and didn't like the stark white back, so I sponged on Old Olive to make it look like leaves. (?) Then I taped my dp down to Magenta c.s. (remember that color?? Retired SU!, but I have a whole pack of it left) and then I sewed all around the edges with zigzag and straight stitches. No stamping on this. I also had these olive and purpley pink rhinestone brads that went perfect with the colors in the dp. :)
I love learning new folds and techniques, so I'm SO ONTO THIS--join us each Monday at SCS. Just see the Monday link in my right column!!
