Flower tutorial

How come, doing this tutorial:
A few friends and I were chatting away, when it was Romy who pointed us
at the new uploaded projects of Ingvild Bolme
and Romy esp pointed out, the flowers Ingvild used on her cards. Because she loves them to pieces!!! So... I went off to Ingvild her blog and started searching for these flowers, cause Romy said.... Ingvild had something to do with designing these Gorgeous Corine Collection flowers. Me.... who loves creating flowers, thought of using baby-wipes for the petals, and that is... how this tutorial came to life.

Anyway... here's what you need:
supplies needed: baby-wipes - aluminium foil - brayer - Gesso - distress inks (any color you want) - Puffy paint - crackle paint (I used peeled paint) - heatgun - thread (you might wanna use some waxcoated thread) - scraps of cardstock - hot glue gun - tweezer - black acrylic paint - glimmermist or iridescent medium.

Before you can get to work:
Take a baby wipe and let it dry completely, before you color it.
You can color it with distress inks or mists, what ever you want.
After coloring, let it airdry.

Take a piece of aluminium foil and add a medium layer of gesso to it

Get your colored babwipe and place it over the layer of Gesso.

Get another piece of aluminium foil and place it over it. Kinda like sandwich it between the layers of aluminium foil. Brayer it. (yes.... mine is not a fancy one...lol)

now get your 1 side coated baby wipe off of it and let it dry completely.

here comes the fun part:
You can now start cutting your petals.
I fold my baby wipe a couple of times, before cutting.

Get your puffy paint out and add it to your petals, let it air dry for an hour or so

Take your heatgun out and heatset the puffy paint.

You might want to use your tweezer to hold the petals. If you heat it just a LITTLE longer the petals will start shaping a bit. Don't heat it too long, or your petal will burn.

For the stamen I used regular thread, (wax coated is perfect for this) which I cut in pieces. Dip the ends
in a mix of puffypaint and, color of your choice, crackle paint. (I used peeled paint)
heatset the ends of your thread.

repeat this step for as many stamen you want ( I used 5 pieces of thread, which give me 10 tiny stamen)

Cut 2 small circles. don't need to be perfect. and punch a hole in one of them.

Get a couple stamen together, and stick them through a little circle of cardstock.

Glue the ends at the bottom

Place another little cardstock circle on top.

You have now created your base for you flower. (you may want to cut the ends, that are sticking out)

Now glue your petals to your base.
first layer:

second layer:

You can add some dimension... by glue-ing a row of pearl strand first to the base,
something like this:

You can give your flower a light shimmer by using glimmermist or like I did, using some Iridescent medium.

The little black spots on the petals:... I made, using my tweezer, dipping it in black acrylic paint.

and your done!! Aren't they cute??

Hope you have fun with them.

I'll be back tomorrow, to show you a layout on which I used these babies!!!

hugs,
Paulien
