I have pondered over what to create for you but with the dreadful news I received last week I have had to create something simple for you, although I love the result. By the way don't forget Maria posted a challenge for you HERE. If you use any of the tutorials from this site you could win a prize.
Today, I wanted to show you how to create the scrunched flower and this is what you will need.
3 Punches or Dies
Mini Mister filled with water
Ink if liked
Punch 4 large, 3 medium and 3 small Flowers, I have used punches for this tutorial but I have also used Dies, so experiment with whatever you have available
You will need to pierce a hole in the centre of each flower. I tend to do this individually as it you do it when all 10 are together it can be quite hard to pierce through.
Ink the edges if you like this style, bear in mind that once we add the water the ink will spread, but I love the look of this. Add your brad to the centre
Spray the flower with the water mister and fold up each petal to the centre. The more scrunchier the better, so don't worry about being particular.
It will look like this. You can either use your heat gun and gently unravel the petals and heat or you can leave it to dry naturally.
I used the centre petals closed. You could add a pearl centre and some glimmer mist for that sheen and sparkle finish.
For the smaller ones I used 4 medium flower punches and 4 small and followed the same procedure.
And here's a card I made earlier using this technique.
