Fabric Flowers

This one is done using TH's Alterations die cut Tattered Florals.  There are four differnt size of flowers in this die.  Only three are used here, the fourth is quie a bit larger.  The rose is done with the same technique as the other roses, but it looks a little different because of th weight of the flower.  There are four layres in the rose, 3 in the daisy and three in the little one.
Each petal of each layer has distress stickles added.  I have a pair of hemostats left over from my doula days and it worked perfectly for holding the petal and rolling it slightly to dry with the heat gun.  The bottom side of the daisy petals are inked, but I found out you have to be very careful because I pulled two petals off doing that.
The base is embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and inked with Spun Sugar Distress inks and the blending sponge tool.  Happy Birthday sentiment is Inkadinkado.  I think it took a couple hours to do this card with all the prep work on the flowers.
