Designer Flowers...Minxy Style!

There seems to be a real trend of DIY flowers at the moment so i decided to have a go myself..
I wanted to make mine solely with tissue paper and see how they came out.. but wasn't sure if i had any, Then i remembered i had some old clothes patterns from my altered art stash and figured that would do the job just as well, if not better as i like to make things my own {not the norm!}
Ah voila.. Scrunch Blooms were born..

Not having any decent flower punches i remembered the fab set of 'Flower Power' stamps from the Artistic Stamper.. just the job.
I stamped and cut out i don't know how many flowers.. The blooms above are large while 'the designer collection' and others are medium in size.
As you can see i did manage to find some normal tissue papers, and the effect is just as good.
Some have distress inked edges, while others a bit of glitter or shimmer {not that it shows in the pic!!!} Your only limited by your imagination!
Who needs designer when you can make um yourself!!!
...
OK OK so i know we all still need the designer names like Prima... i was kidding... but the great thing is that you can add in your prima's and make um even more lush!

Right i've showed you my bloomers... now its back to making the cards for them to embellish!
