I made this for the All That Scraps Wednesday challenge, but realized that it also fits the F4A55 garden challenge also. I'm so excited about these flowers, they were so fun and easy to make!! I used the Spellbinders Blossom 2 die set in two smallest sizes, a total of 2 smallest flowers in yellow, and 3 next smallest in Rose Red (2) and Purely Pomegranite (1). I attached them with a brad with the Pomegranite on the bottom and then spayed with water and pulled top yellow layer straight up, spraying each layer, until all layers have been lifted to surround the brad, squishing the whole thing. One by one carefully pull down the layers, the water gives them all that texture and makes them firm. I've done it with thinner paper before, but be careful of tearing. I colored the Magnolia Tilda image with Tombows this time, this is my first time using Tombow's so there's much room for improvement. The dp is Echo Park and I embossed with embossing folder. The lace is also by Magnolia, an edge die and I used the same technique as the flowers and sprayed it with water to give it a tattered look. TFL & God Bless!

Love-love-love your blooms! And I do believe your Tombo talent is just as gorgeous as your copics- you got it girl! What a sweet, innocent image. Wonderful!
