distressed flowers tutorial using heartfelt creations posy patch stamps set

hello scrappy friends!

it is almost spring and what better way to greet a new season than with flowers?!so here is my new distressed flowers tutorial using the heartfelt creations' POSY PATCH stamp set and POSY PATCH die.

the whole process takes no more than 20 minutes {30 if you don't use a heating tool} and the result is pretty amazing. here is what you need:

step 1: stamp different size posies on a creme coloured cardstock. use the posy patch stamp set and brown ink.

step 2: cut the posies with a die cutting machine and HC posy patch die or by hand

step 3:  layer the different sized posies on top of each other and glue them with double sided tape; for the flower center you can use brads, buttons, eyelets, rhinestones or anything that comes to mind; if you choose a brad {as i did}, you can use a paper piercing tool to make a hole through all the layers and attach the brad through the hole: 

step 4: using a mini mister, begin "watering" your flower and scrunching the different layers into the center; continue scrunching up each layer to the center until your flower looks like this:

step 5: then open up the outer layers until you are happy with the result; it doesn't matter that you don't see the stamped image, the brown edges will give an extra shabby look to your blossom:

step 6: you can use your flower like this or you can add glimmer mist, glitter, ink, pearls or any other art medium to achieve the colour you desire; i used delphinium glimmer mist and fine glitter {TIP: don't remove the protective foil from the glitter container; pierce few holes in it and use it as a salt shaker!}

now step back and admire your flowery goodness!

these gorgeous blossoms can be added to any project your heart desires. think scrapbook pages, cards, banners, wreaths, photo frames, decorative candles, really the sky is the limit.

here is how they look on my layout:

happy crafting!

hugs 'n smiles,
