201 Icee

Heheheehe... this turned out to be much more challenging than I thought!  But it would have helped if I really read the details of the challenge.  I was suppose to use THREE circles... (umm oops), fabric, metal, leaves, polka dots..
So, here's what I did instead... I first used a product called Fabric Stiffener.  It does what the title implies.  You smear it on your fabric (on that craft mat!) and allow it to dry.  If you smooth it out, you can use circle cutters, punches.. and depending on the thickness of can cut and run thru your CRICUT.  (thanks Stephanie for letting me use yours as a guinea pig!)  If you don't, you get a textured, wobbley fabric.  All the white circles are fabric (polka dot fabric in fact).  I also took some ribbon and lightly colored with my mists. Once it was dry, I twisted it into a rosette.  (hmm it's okay)  My metal are two copper leaves made from a heart punch.  Not satisfied, I took too crystal floral pics, wrapped them around a paint brush and bling!! Done. 

After that, I took a step away from my usual "style" and started to heap the flower on.  I used Prima, Petaloo, Kaiser and punches from CM.  Threw on some "Dew Drops" some Perfect Pearls... and stepped away.
