Handmade flowers from Vintage lace

I've seen so many people make handmade flowers from lace, so I decided to try it myself for a mini I'm working on for a swap at

Here's how they turned out...

This is the flower on the front of the mini I'm working on.  It's a TP mini.  I don't want to share anymore of it until my secret sis receives it.  I'll post better pics after she does. 

This is just the flower...before I put it on the cover.  I added another stick pin to it before I put on the mini cover.  The lace was white and found in my Granny's Sewing room.  I used homemade glimmer mist with Slate Green acrylic paint and Folk Art Metallic Gold paint.  It doesn't have much shimmer because i didn't add much gold, but the leaves behind it add more shine.  I added 3 feathers and a handmade stickpin.  To top it off I used a Recollections button in the center.  I'm addicted to making these now.  They were so much fun.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Monday!
