There are many layers on my rose. I think I used a total of 8 small, 4 medium and 3 large flowers from the die to make this flower. I sprayed with water and crinkled the papers as well. I used Tim Holtz Kraft Resist papers and inked them with distress festive berry ink. I used gold Stickles for and added touch. I cut the 2 leaves from burlap and inked with evergreen bough distress ink.
For the sunflower I cut 2 larger flower from die and inked with mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks. I creased the petals a bit to look more like a sunflower and inked the tips with a little black. For the center I added some black glitter. I cut a single leave and added evergreen bough distress ink.
My version of a tiger lily. I cut 2 larger flowers from acetate. I used sunset orange alcohol ink to add color. I used a heat gun to apply a bit of heat for a little dimension. This way the flowers aren't too flat. You only need a little heat the acetate melts fast. I did have to try this method a couple times. For the centers I inked with orange and used a permanent marker for tips of stamen. Next time I will go a bit darker. Add dots on flower with permanent marker. These aren't my fave flowers but I think they turned out pretty cool.
I cut 3 small flowers from acetate. They remind me of the Forget -me- Not's when used individually. I did used the heat gun again for a curled effect. I added stream alcohol ink for color and added pearls to the centers.
Well that's my stockpile so far. I had a lot of fun making these flowers. I hope you like them too.
Thanks for stopping by! Love and hugs!
