Technique Thursday

Alrighty ladies today I'm offering a picture tutorial for you all.  Some very fun and nifty flowers I make. I used one last week on the layout I posted.

Here they are shown in different colors and such to show they can be used in a variety of ways.

Use a circle cutter as I did here, or just trace around different size glasses.

I used a 2 inch circle, 3 inch circle and a 4 inch circle.

Now crumple up each circle in your hand.. as much or as little as you like.

I used my watermark stamp pad here.. as it stays nice and wet to apply your embossing powders.

Now apply the pad to the circle. I just like to run mine along the edges and the wrinkles.

Then cover the circles with the embossing powder and tap it off.. if there's too much on there.. use a brush or your finger to clean some off.

Use your heat gun until embossing powder become glossy.

This is what you now have when they are dry. I love the look of this on textured cardstock. It's like a glossy leather almost.. soo great.

Add a rhinestone or button or flower to the center or even some ribbon with a bow and your done!

I hope you enjoyed and will try this. It's super fun.
