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 ................here we go again lol
