Totally Tilda ch# 5 Make your Own Flower/s

Apologies  bloggers I am trying to get round to leave comms.
but Mr. Blogger has other ideas..I will come & see you ASAP..XXX

Happy Sunday folks its time for another Totally Tilda chall.
Many thanks to all who took part with our last chall gorgeous creations.
Well onto our chall of Make your own flower/s..Theres lots of tuts
on line..& I know lots of you crafters already make your own..
so lets see them on your Tilda creation...

The prize this wk. is 100 Die Cut Flowers from
"Die Cut Dreams"
sponsored by our very own Susie

This is what I came up with...I wanted to replicate the  lovely
Peony Tilda is holding.. coloured with Markers & Prismas..mounted
 with foam pads onto nestie shape..the DP is K&Co..the dark ruby shape
which I love is from Die Cut Dreams...sizzix die for the leaves
rest from stash.. onto the flower

Thought I would give you a close up & tell you how it was made..
 Nestie Blossom dies 3 sizes cut a few of each, out of cream card.
Scrunch up & work  so the card is soft & splits into layers..
Nxt ink up the pieces.. I start with the bottom layer small amount of
PVA glue layer up & shape using smaller pieces as you go & off set them,
at this point I sprayed with glimmer mist.. opened the centre a little
& put a blob of silicon glue added some seed beads.
I did see this tut online & if I can find it again I will leave a link..
(this is the link where I got the idea for the flowers)
