Grunge Flowers

Back again... Remembered this morning that I hadn't blogged the grunge flowers I made last week. Saw a video with TH making grunge flowers and really liked the result so, of course, I had to try!
This was the first try. I cut the flower layers from grunge paper using the Cricut, then cut the same file from pages of an old book. I used Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet to distress the flowers, then kindyglitz to provide the sparkle.
Fixed the flowers together with a bling brad then added a brooch pin to the back.

Used the same files to cut this one and tried Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint DIs. Bought some Peeled Paint Distress stickles and used on the petals but didn't show up very well so used walnut stain stickles as well, and this added a bit of darker shading on the edges of the petals.
Same bling brad and brooch pin on the back.
