Rhonda McKeown was also playing at my house that day and showed us how to make the Tim Holtz style grunge rose using your cricut die-cutting machine.
My first attempt under Rhonda's supervision turned out like it was supposed to, however later that night trying it myself things didn't turn out exactly the same.
I blame it on using a different cricut cartridge! All the same this little flower turned out to be quite funky if i do say so myself even if its a bit wonky!!
The flowers were coloured using cosmic shimmer mister sprays in shades of purples, blues and reds.
The flourish's were cut using the cricut and again coloured using the misters in three shades of green.
Both were spritzed with the colours then dabbed with and old bit of plastic to create a textured effect.
I decided to combine the two new projects I had learnt that day and made a little pearly gift bag to attach the flower to.
This bag is the same size as the previous one.
I used two pieces of narrower organza ribbon for the handles on this one.
Thanks for looking
