ABAC2 - Lace flowers

Good morning! Two weeks passed since we started ABAC challenge blog, so it's time for our next challenge. This one is easy too -  you just need to make sure, your project has TEXTURE

I was playing with fabric and lace and made some flowers this week - I used this flower tutorial

I used wide lace, satin, muslin and tulle for them. I cut out the petals using TH Tattered florals and Heartfelt creations Posy Patch dies. The thick dies cut fabric better than the thin metal nesting ones, but if you don't have anything else you can use those too - just be prepared to snip some threads. They all started out as white/cream and I dyed them with Glimmer Mists. I would make more, but these where all the Glimmer Mist colors I had :) You can speed up the drying with heat tool, just be careful around tulle - or you'll end up with a bunch of melted tulle mess - don't ask how I know ;)

After layering I decorated the flowers with pearls, beads ans stickles, some even got feathers.

Challenges:
Simply Create Too - anything goes
Try it Out Tuesday - anything goes
Through the Craftroom door - anything goes
