Crumpled Flowers


I don't know what people are calling these flowers made out of layered circles.  I've seen them with ink added to the edges, edges that are torn, and some are crinkled too. 

Mine have a small amount of ink sponged along the outer edges of each circle layer, and the circles are very much imperfect - I didn't care if they were perfectly round or not.  I misted them with water, crinkled them up and dried them quickly with my heat tool.  My friend Melissa came over and we each gave ourselves the same supplies and created 3 of our own individual cards using them, and I must say hers turned out much better.  My creativity has been hit-or-miss lately.  My other two turned out pretty ugly and they were different colors than this one, but don't hold your breath to see them - they're too awful to post.  ;)

Hope you like it!
