I love these flowers!!
I learned how to make these from a YouTube tutorial I stumbled upon while checking out some Tim Holtz techniques. You can find the link below. The tutorial used Grungepaper and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Floral Bigz Die.
YouTube Grunge Flower Tutorial
This technique will work with any 6 petal flower. I cut my flowers using Plantin Schoolbook and Sweet Treats Cricut cartridges. I inked the orange colored one with Ranger Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. The blue one is inked with Distress Inks in Broken China and Dusty Concord, I stamped some of the petals with "love" to give it a more unique look.
With ink, stamps, pattered paper...the possibilities are endless!
Head on over to my BFF's blog to check out her beauties!
