Tesa here to share a fun and easy flower tutorial using Embossing resist technique.

The thing with this flower is that you need a paper with patterns on both sides that coordinates. I prefer to use one sided patterned paper and make the coordinated colors and patterns using my stamps and inks. In this case I wanted a grey and pink color scheme and found this polka dot paper from American crafts. On the back side I stamped the Timeless Texture with Clear emboss ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I went over it with Distress ink Victorian Velvet.

Next I punched out 7 circles with my 1” punch. A larger punch gives a larger flower. Once cone I inked the edges with Weathered wood and folded each of the circles into V:s.

 Punch a circle out of scrap paper and use as base for the flower. Cover it with glue and assemble the flower.

I secured my flower with a brad in the center and mounted it on a scalloped circle made with my nesties.
