Tissue Flowers

Hi everyone, here again with a project that could be done all year round.  I love these little tissue flowers. 

I started by blending Concrete, Mermaid and Captain Peacock onto a 6x6 canvas board. Then I added my new star stamp in Aquamarine archival, radiating out from the centre. 

The edge has a little Blueberry rubbed around it. 

At the bottom I stamped my new trees. The dots of snow are easily covered with a little more of the blue paints. 

I coloured them in using Pitt pens, then added a half wooden spool. This was painted with Blueberry and a scrap of card , first painted with Moonlight and then stamped with the side of the long bauble stamp. 

Next I painted some tissue paper. 

and stamped pout the circle image. 

I cut apart the circles and the sprayed each piece with water before scrunching them up. These were left to dry and then and layered up the colours, mounting them onto a scalloped circle of white card. 

Each flower had a length of wire inserted. 

Once these were trimmed to different lengths they were tied together with purple craft wire and then the ends were glued into the wooden spool.  Finally a tag was added. 

I felt the background needed a pop of colours so I flicked on some pink paint.
