Making flowers again

Yep I was at it again.  I had yesterday off so I started tinkering around and ended up making some flowers.  I cut pieces of my home town newspaper up and glued it to reg white card stock.  Then using the Tim Holtz sizzix tattered florals die.  I ran the paper through the cuttlebug.  I don't know what I was thinking.  I just wanted some newpaper printed paper like.  I embossed the ends of the flowers in my black & gold embossing powder I had for years and forgot all about till  yesterday.  Back from my rubber stamping/card making days.  I curled some of the flowers petals.  It was more of a play time for me then anything.  I figure if I  practice enough some day I will make some really great flowers.  I did watch a live ustream last night on making flowers.  I learned some new things.  Here is a link to the site.  It is under the title FFFF for Feb First Fabulous Flowers
I am keeping hope alive that I will make some really beautiful flowers here in the future.  I know it is easy to just buy them but what fun is that?
