Tissue Paper Flower

Hey ladies!
Those of you who know my style know that I am a quick scrapper & like things pretty simple. I am not frilly or girly, so when I was playing along with a challenge over on the forums at the Flying Unicorn that stated you had to make your own flowers, at first I was stumped. Then I remembered making tissue paper flowers years ago on a layout. (I also included one on my "In the Fall" layout from yesterday's post.) So I went to my wrapping paper/gift bag closet & grabbed some paper to make the least fussy flowers I could!

I thought I would do a quick pic tutorial of them for any of you who may be interested.
First gather your supplies. You will need any color tissue paper, a stamp, Staz-On black ink, a circle punch & mists (optional).
Start by stamping your image on the tissue paper several times. This will be the background of your flower so a large image will work best. I chose a text stamp.

Next, punch 2 circles from the stamped tissue paper. If you want your flower to be fuller & have more dimension, you can use more layers.

Then, simply pinch the tissue paper around the edges & gather in the middle. Do this with all layers & stack one on top of the other, securing with a strong adhesive (I used Glossy Accents).

Lastly, mist with your favorite color. I added a gem in the middle to give the flower a finished look. So simple (that's me), but I love the outcome!

Hope you enjoyed!
Have a wonderful Monday night!
