Grunge Paper and Fabric Flower Cards

Grunge Paper Flower cards

I,m still trying to do a little bit of crafting and sewing although my shoulder is still painful to move it,MRI scans on wednesday so hopefully they can sort me out after.

This past week i have been inspired to make some grunge paper flowers,why is it i still need to buy stuff,I have the diecut machines and a couple of flower punches but still need more different shape flowers grrrrrr ..........

Well with what i have at hand this is what i came up with not earth shattering lol but passable,i used some templates and my punch to cut ot these (bought some grunge paper from Ebay,I LOVE Ebay lol)
I then painted with metalic acyrlic paints before that i embossed on my cuttlebug,but did'nt work to good on grunge,so next time i will try card ,take a look at this ladies vidio on making flowers,very inspiring here The backgrounds i have used Batik Fabric layered onto felt,I meant to do some fancy stitching but forgot !
The blue/green card i dye'd some ribbon for the centre then put some gold glue dots onto that,used a brad for the centre to hold it all together.

Watching that vidio i think,i will invest in some more die's of different flower shapes we go again lol

They're both beautiful! I love all the detail on the blue/green one, but I think my favourite is the purple one.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder Pattie, hope they can fix it soon and sort it out after your scan.

Love them.

But I do find that like you once you have the basics ( die-cut m/c, ink pads, etc) you never have enough of what it takes to make the things ( dies, stamps) that you want for your latest artwork. I think that is one of the reasons I have stayed with collage and painting.
