Flower Tutorial Using Mini Paper Cups or Paper Souffle

Hi, it's Marivic here sharing with you what I discovered and what you can do with those mini souffle cups that you see in fast food restaurants. Well, they are great for Ketchup and hot, crispy fries!
Or you can color them and make them into pretty flowers that are so easy to make. 

Following Debbie's April Flower's what I made.
I will also make life easier for you. I tried mist sprays in different brands, even the vibrant dylusions..It doesn't work great..Also tried Luminarte, Shimmerz, and Letraset Aquamarkers. It just didn't give me the vibrant colors I am trying to achieve. 

The best one to use is this water soluble pastel sticks from Charvin.
They are awesome and very cheap..
So, next time you go to a burger joint, remember to ask for those souffle cups.

Have fun!!

Here I used it with the help of photoshop, I made the flowers into digital elements.

Here's my digi page and my daughter...

And here's another page using our sponsor's (inkido) paper...

Here's a reminder about our challenge...You have less than 2 weeks to

My favorite boy...

Hey there,

I always make "girly" pages. But this time I want to focus on my youngest son, Josh.

Josh is 5 years old and has the sweetest smile. If I'm in a bad mood all I need to see is see him smile and my worries fly away, well at least momentarily. He has this twinkle in his eyes that I hope and wish will never go away..

So here is my little man...Joshie..

Thanks for stopping by..I hope you are doing well..

Have a great weekend!
