Terrifically Thrilling Thursday at Shelly's Images

Hello all! It’s time for Terrifically Thrilling Thursday over at Shelly’s Images! The challenge this week is Show Us What You Got so anything goes! You can enter the challenge HERE and here’s a little inspiration from me using an image from the store called Tulips.

For my flower this time, I used the tutorial listed in an earlier post (Sisters' Stuff, Paper Loves Glue, and Mad Mim) but added some tulle between each layer and some Stickles to the edges. I've had so much fun making these flowers and burning the edges. For my latest flower, my fabric was white so I colored it lavender with my ProMarkers before I burned it.... Well, you definitely want to wait until the ink dries. Did you know that Alcohol is highly flammable... even if it is ink!!! Lol! You definitely want to have a dish of water nearby!

ProMarkers: Lavender, Orchid, Purple, Meadow Green, Apple
Stamps: Sentiment Tulips from Shelly's Images
Embossing: Sizzix Texturz Texture Plates Kit #16: Tween Vines
The rest is from my stash
