Tattered floral die competition

After seeing Hels' demo of creating 3d flowers using flower stamps with 6 petals several years ago I have created these flowers using what ever has 6 petals.  the very small ones don't work so well and I often end up with fingers covered in glossy accents which tends to cause a few problems for a while!! So, after reading on facebook about the challenge on Tim Holtz' blog to show what you do with the tattered floral die - what an excuse to use the die to make some more of these little beauts and then to use them to decorate a present for Mothers day...


the flowers were cut out of kraft resist cardstock - which were then coloured using distress stains.  The flowers were then shaped and adhered using glossy accents.  The tiny flower was shaped and moulded to bring the petals all up together - it was just a bit toooo small to mould in the same way as the bigger blooms....

Pop on over to Tim Holtz's blog to see the other entries....
