Pretty in pink...and gold...and green

I know, Tim didn't colorize his Tissue Wrap Flowers but I did!  Another CCCv2 challenge has been met.  For #10 Linda chose to challenge us to create these very simple flowers.  The instructions can be found on p. 37 of Tim's 2nd book.  I didn't like the way my first one turned out so I refolded it and made the cuts deeper.  On the gold one I chose to make pointed cuts but then cut between the petals; the green one I folded the short side so the flower is a bit smaller in diameter.

Once I cut the tissue wrap I colored each one with a different medium.  The pink was colored with Dusty Concord and Barn Red distress stains.  The gold one was colored with Butterscotch and Sunshine Yellow alcohol inks while the green one was colored using Pool and Butterscotch Adirondack inks.  I attached each to a floral pick and added a button for the centers.  I can't believe the color coordination - perfect!

The small jar has a Wendy Vecchi technique used on it.  She used Glue 'N Seal and Crackle Paint.  The jar is filled with sand so it's hard to see the cracks.  A remnant of burlap was wrapped around the jar and tied.  Another button was glued on top (after it was sanded to distress and covered and wipe clean of black gesso).

Here's a view from the top.  Leaves were cut from the Sizzix/TH Tattered Garland Die using the tissue wrap scraps.  They were colored with Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo distress markers.


















This week's challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie's Boutique and they're giving away a $25 gift certificate.  Can you say 'shopping trip'?    Hope you find a bit of time to make your own bouquet!
