Another take on Tattered Florals

An idea popped into my head last night and would not leave.
Based on my very first blog tutorial here. Variagated recycled book flowers.

So here is the tutorial should you wish to watch the youtube video:

or if you preffer step by step instructions complete with pics go here

So being me and it being almost the 11th hour I had to try this with the tattered florals.

I had an ornament I never quite knew how I wanted to finish that I had experimented with clear gallery glass and pearl ex powder on the inside of.

I added some white paper twine around the top with some magic tape and a loop to hang the ornament.

Then used some glue dots to adhere the handmade scrunched tattered floral flowers around the outside of the glass bauble.

I had an idea when I was about to sort the flowers and dry them. I took out two pieces of white cs and placed the flowers over them. I misted the flowers and dabbed them off with paper towel pushing them down onto the cs

this is the results:

the best thing is I now have two pretty handmade background or even card bases and thus wasted less distress reinker 🙂
