Cherry Blossom June Calendar Page

Hi all!  It is the first if the month at time to show you the projects that I made for the Custom Quilling Newsletter.  First the next installment of the quilled and floral punch calendar, Cherry Blossoms for June.  This flower is one that I fell in love with when I took the floral punch class last year and I have been saving it to do until now.  The blossoms and buds are punched out of coffee filter paper and water colored with Twinkling H2O's, shaped, layered and adhered to a wire branch.  I added some Stickles to the stamens for interest.  I inked the background with a pretty sky blue that makes those pink blossoms pop.  So pop on over to Custom Quilling and check out the newsletter to see the other project that have been made by Sue and I with the May kit.  Denise also has the punches needed to make these beautiful cherry blossoms and the other floral punch flowers shown on my blog. 

Check back to see another of the DT projects that I created with the kit, I call "Quilled Tole".  Plus a card made with cherry these blossoms.

Comments are always welcome and very much appreciated! Link your creations in the comments section below.

Wow, this is so pretty! I had used coffee filters for flowers before but never thought of dye it and reshape it. Gotta try out now.

Beautiful! I love the color and texture of the coffee filter flowers.
