These little guys are for my son's class for a Halloween "treat". The school is discouraging suggary junk food so I came up with this idea out of JoAnn's $1 isle. I'm pleased with the results. We're going to make some spiders and bats for our house (sans pencils).

Turn your scallop circle punched shapes into flowers by cutting slits down to the center! For me this is one of those simple pleasures where every time I do it I get a thrill of satisfaction. Maybe my life needs a little more excitement.
Stamps: Holidays & Wishes, Little Pieces
Paper: Whisper White ,Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Regal Rose, BASIC BROWN

I saw a card very similar to this and had to recreate it (by memory)
But loved the whole idea of making the window matte with the 1 3/8"
square punch. Then leaving some of the leaves of the flowers "outside
of the box". I watercolored the image using the Watercolor wonder
crayons. I got the idea from Running with scissors. Take a look over
at her blog, she has great ideas.
Stamp set: Oh, So Lovely (hostess)
Accessories: watercolor wonder crayons, aquapainter
The papers are really old and don't know the maker.
