Shabby Fabric Flower Tutorial by Tonya Gibbs

Hi everyone HAPPY IRS day if you are here in the US (LOL - GRUMBLE GRUMBLE)   Here is a post that will help you get over those tax day blues!

I'm sharing with you a simple tutorial for creating these beautiful Shabby Flowers using Marion Smith Designs Rose Petal Die (the one in the center of the photo below). Oh and BTW -  the Bloom tools are shipping to retailers now - so exciting I hope you got one. I used embossing powder to recolor the filigree flowers from antique brass to gold and silver.

For my tag I used the Garment District collection and Marion's Junque and Gems for my Flower centers.

I've attached my flower to this tag.  I created the tag background during my January Ustream.  Can you say ohhhhhhh soooo Shabby?


Here is a process video of me making the flower.

 I'm working on a few projects now using these flowers.  My next few posts will be using them. 

Thanks for stopping in today,

Tonya Gibbs
