Weekend workshop #9

Hello again, wow thank you so much for the cards for this weeks challenge of “Pastel Pink & Cool Aqua + Maria’s sketch” they are all so beautiful, and everyone’s colouring is improving by the week. We also have newcomers to PM’s too, it is great to see everyone still so excited about the markers, and if you think you have missed anything, fear not, we have all the prior tutorials on PDF files just pop me an email here and I will get them to you asap. If you have already sent me an email and not had a response please email again as the PDF tutorials have been so popular and I must admit I have been overwhelmed with emails :)
Ok this week we only have one tutorial but it is an amazing one. If you have seen Michele’s cards you will have noticed her beautiful flowers, well she did not buy them like that, she made them and even better she is going to show us all how to do it :)

Michele’s Flower Tutorial
I have had lots of requests to show how I make my flowers, so here’s how I do it. For the roses I first got the idea off this blog, and this is my version.
These are the die cuts and flower punch that I use most of the time when I make these flowers.
You will also need white scrap cardstock and plain white photocopier paper for the roses.
