Flower Tutorial 1

Flower Tutorial 1
Craft items you will need
·       Tim Holtz Tattered flowers Bigz die from Sizzix
·       Embossing mat or something spongy ( I used a sponge mat that is used for stamps)
·       A big ball embossing tool and something that has a round end (I use the end of a large glue pen)
·       Distressing Ink
·       Small stamps
·       Copics, pencils etc
·       Glitter or Stickles
·       Light weight card
·       Memento ink
·       A wet glue (I use Glossy accents or a glue gun)

Step 1 

Cut out 4 medium flowers and 4 small flowers (you can use any flower puncher you have just as long as it has 6 petals or more).

You can add as many flowers as you like.  I just like to use no more than nine.

Step 2 
Stamp your chosen image on the front and back of all the flowers (if you use copics you need to use Memento Ink).

Using  your distressing inks, ink up the front and back and colour with your chosen medium.

Step 3

Cut into the flower but only slightly just so the petals have a

 slight give.

Step 4

Start with your large embossing tool and gently move in circles starting at the edge of the petals, working towards the centre.    The effects you want to get are the petals starting to curl inwards. 

Now using the large round end of a pen or something similar, work in circles in the centre to make the petals lift even more.  

Step 5

Emboss each flower until they look like this

Step 6

Now comes the fun part,
to assemble start with the one of the large flowers and dab a small amount of glue in the centre and stack the  large flowers on top of each other alternating the petals.   

Step 7

Next assemble the small flowers together so you end up with two bundles of flowers.  

Step 8

Use a dab of glue on the bottom of the small bunch of flowers and stick inside the larger bunch.

Step 9

This is what you should end up with. Add glitter or stickles if you like and your done.

Thank you for visiting me today, hope you found my tutorial of some help.

I'm setting up this blog to list all sorts of tutorials. As I'm finding it takes me ages to search for the information I might need for different projects. If you have a tutorial that you would like me to add here please get in contact. All I would do would be to list your tutorial, what it is and then a link to your blog/site.
