Say it with Flowers!

Hello crafty folks,
Welcome to my page! I am so excited to share with you some hand made flowers that I made with the lovely paper collection and groove tools from DRESS MY CRAFT.
 I am a DT with Crafters Corner and I happened to make these flowers with my favorite Tim Holtz Tattered florals die. I can never get tired of this die.
This is how I started with the die cuts and used Distress inks in different colors and tones to color the petals and have used these tools to shape the flowers, leaves and butterflies too! 

The butterflied too were stamped on this special paper and one on book page and then colored.
 I worked with the tool to shape the wings and they were all set to fly!
For a detailed post on how to use these tools please click the link HERE.
here is look at the flowers that got done.
 Once the flowers were ready, I decided o use them in a project and I thought the prima Bloom girl was the perfect choice to show case these hand made beauties.
And so here I went about altering this packing box.....
I used a book page to stamp the image and have used Inketense blocks to color her. I loved how she looked and she was all set to adorned with these flowers.
I worked on creating some textures on the lid with stencils and texture paste and have tried the water color effect  so there I still have some negative space!
 I bit of random stamping for more textures and I had these stamped and inked butterflies hovering around this wonderful quote for the day!
This is how the bloom girl looks, all done up. 
Some color splats on the flowers give it little more mixed media feel and I like the entire shabby chic, CAS kind of look, lol!
I have not done too many whites at all!
I had a great time making these flowers and then using them up as embellishments ...hope to hear your comments on these too.
