Canvas Flowers and make your very own petals

Hi Bev Code here today at Off the Rails Scrapbooking. So glad to be sharing this today.
Starting with canvas floral shapes of different sizes I inked and multi sprayed for colour.

Now I hand stitched the centre pulling it together to give it some 
texture looking waves to look more natural.
Then glue them on top of each other.

Now I will share how to make your very own leaves and all you need is green cardstock.
Follow the instructions above to make as many as you need.

Details now on making and finishing my card using the flower and leaves from above.

I started the card with a store purchased base and heidi grace designs paper.
I used my Kreaxions Punches #303 and #903 with insert to make my borders and then
matted them with cardstock to pop the punched borders. 
I also added SRM sticker stitches to the borders.
Now following one of my very own sketches to make this card. (see below) I started
to form the centre - 2 squares with inked edges and a
 SRM floral sticker and then the main centre piece.
Here I used the burlap, added more layers to
 my flower from above and added the homemade leaves.
To finish it off I made a multi layers sentiment that started with SRM Sticker.

Thanks for stopping by.. so glad to share 2 ideas ... how to create a fabulous flower from 
the great floral canvas pieces and also how to make your very own leaves.
Be sure to try these yourself... and have fun creating.
