Tattered flowers

Hello blogcreatures,

Sorry ! It's been a while , but I am a bit busy! I am back today with a mini project. I made some flowers the for the new challenge on T.H's blog.
The main rule is to use the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz.  I have no glimmer mist or stuff like that. So I make my own spray using ink and food coloring.  Love it! Hope you like my flowers. If you have any question ,please leave a comment below. Have a great day!


  1. Sunt foarte dragute floricelele! Bafta la concurs!

  2. Lovely, and the colors is much more alive than glimmer mist....

  3. Just LOVE the way these are moulded!

  4. You have always made the most beautiful flowers... By the way.
    These are stunning.
    Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.

  5. I have lots of questions:
    1. What kind of paper did you use?
    2. Did you use the original "Tattered florals" die from Tim Holtz? (Not the mini version?)
    3. How many layers did you use in each rose?
    4. How do you shape your inner parts of your roses? Do you cut them down to roll them that hard? Are they smaller flower sizes?
    I love your roses! The colour is absolutely stunning!

    1. Thanks for your questions.

      1. I used watercolor paper 210gm .
      2. I used the original die.
      3. For the big flower I used about 16 layers . Medium flower 8 layers . Small flower 7.
      4. First I dye my paper then cut the flowers and play with the edge of the petals. I use my finger tips.
      The smallest flower is about : 3 cm / 1.2 inch

    2. Thank you so very much for your answers!
      My goodness, 16 layers! I need to try that out!
      It looks absolutely amazing!

    3. No problem. Yes. takes time!! By the way. Make sure you use hot glue gun to put everything together

    4. I really hope you win the challenge! I think your roses are the best by far!

  6. Your flower colors are beautiful

  7. They're really beautiful!
