My FIRST Flowers..

 Hello my dear scrappy friends and family!!  Welcome to my little scrappy place. 
Some of you saw know I've been playing around with McGill Punches.  I was hesitant to buy them at first thinking I wouldn't be able to make such pretty roses.. but.. I bought anyways and having an online coupon .. why not. So.. I played yesterday and well.. I have ALOT more practice to do, but I did better than I thought. So.. if you always wanted to make your own flowers.... GO FOR IT!!! If I can do it.. SO CAN YOU!!! 

This was my first try. Looks kinds THIN.. I Tattered Angels "sprayed" this. The leaves are paint. Ehh.. It's ok.. 

This is the second one!! I used SU paper and inked all the petals. I added a stamen. Looks a little more "real". 
So.. what do you think??  Go get ya some McGill punches and make some flowers!! This is GREAT to do while watching tv !!

Thanks again for stopping by!! Have a CRAFTY DAY!!! 




I love both of your flowers. I think the second one looks beautiful, but I like the first one too! :O)
