My flower tutorial!!!!!!

Well here I am with post 2 today!! I have had so many emails and comments on how I make my flowers so I thought I would do a quick tutorial for you so anyone that would like to make them will know how I do it now.
These are the punches I use, The large and medium retro punches from Fiskars, Martha Stewart branch and leaf punch and my crackle stamp from Innovation Stamp Creations.

I punch 2 each of each size retro flower out and stamp them with my crackle stamp

Next I distress them with ink around the edges the color depends on the color of flower I am using. I also fold each leaf in the middle to make it stand out.


Then I stack the 4 flowers together layering them to show each leaf.



Then I add the brad and spacer and the branch and leaf to the flower and use them on my project. Here I have made a door hanging for my granddaughter with one of the Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie. I have used a piece from a floor puzzle and sanded it and glued my pp to it cut the shape out and then decorated it, My gorjuss girl has been colored with my copic's my wording is from a sizzix alphabet set, the butterfly is from MS and the ribbon is from my stash.

Not really for sure about the paper it was just in my stash I had. I have used my crop a dile to punch holes in the puzzle and added large eyelets and ran my ribbon through to use as a hanger.
Well that is going to be it for me today, still have some chores to do around the house before I have to get ready to go back to work tomorrow. So hope you have enjoyed my flowers for you that have asked how I do it. If you have any questions please EMAIL ME, and I will try to help.
Big Hugs!!
