Paper Carnations

As we all know by now, I am obsessed with making flowers and I ran across this video on you tube for making paper carnations and I decided I would share this with everybody! All you need is a scalloped circle punch, cardstock, a brad  and water. How easy is that?

I used this Stampin Up scalloped circle punch for my flowers, and I chose to experiment with different types of favorite were the Tim Holtz inks of course because they gave the most brilliant color. I love these little beauties......aren't they super cute? I did discover when using pigment ink....when you hit the paper with the water....the pigment ink actually turns different shades of color and almost gives a tie dye effect which I thought was super cool!

Can't wait to try these flowers on an altered project! I'm sure they will mix in with my Prima flowers and flourishes beautifully! I will post pics of projects I make using these flowers later on! Thanks for looking. Please leave a comment!
