Irene, Kerri, Hippieaud (Aka Audrey) and a mystery anonymous person!!
I think I've figured out how to find your blogs so I'll be popping over for a visit later on!
After my efforts last week with the ribbon flowers I went in search of some new things to make - I didn't have to look very far as the Little Birdie Secrets blog used last week for the ribbon flowers had a tutorial for torn paper flowers.
Here's the experts picture:
and here's my attempt:
I'm really quite pleased with how they've turned out - especially the green and red ones - as the handmade paper (possibly Mulberry - but I'm not sure) has given a feathery effect. I struggled to rip the yellow card - so used a water spray to wet the card first which made it heaps easier to tear. I really can't remember where I saw that tip - I thought it was on the Little Birdie website - but when I read it back it wasn't there!
The yellow flower centre is a plain gold brad, while the red and green flower's centre is card candy - the layers are secured with a small blob of silicone glue.
The red flower is my favourite, I really want to make some more just because they are so pretty - so hopefully there will be a challenge somewhere this week called "use a red flower".
Thanks for reading!
