That’s my first tutorial, so I hope that it will be understandable.
Punches : Retro flower small and large size;
McGill mat or mouse pad;
Step1: Die cut 3 large flowers and 3 smaller.
Step 2 : Spray with water the 3 big flowers and 1 small
Step 3: Curl each petal around a paintbrush, for example, and pinch them gently to wrinkle. You do this with the 3 large flowers and 1 small.
Let dry completely – no heat gun, just some patience. Be careful, you want the petals to keep the form you just give them.
Step 4: In the meantime, using a ball stylus in a circular motion, curl up the petals of the last two small flowers. For one of them drag the stylus towards the middle of the flower, this will force the petals to curl upwards and inwards.
Your flowers should look like this: 2 small cupped flowers:
Step 5: When the first flowers are dry, you need to twist gently each petals between your fingers:
The flowers should look like this now:
Glue the 3 large flowers together: stack one flower onto the other staggering the petals and then the smallest.
Glue the 2 small cupped flowers together before adding them into the middle of your layered flowers.
Here is the finish flower. You can color your flower before or after finishing it.
The one above was sprayed after.

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."February 6, 2012 at 5:03 pm #155558February 6, 2012 at 5:06 pm #155555February 6, 2012 at 5:07 pm #155559February 6, 2012 at 6:19 pm #155554February 6, 2012 at 7:22 pm #155561February 6, 2012 at 7:34 pm #155562February 6, 2012 at 7:41 pm #155563February 6, 2012 at 10:16 pm #155564
