Better late than never! So glad you persevere with me. I seem to have a lot of time on my hands one day, and I get stuck into a job and then the day is gone and before you know it, it is time to do the CE card again. Where is our time going. Anyway here is the promised tutorial. Do you want to see the classic rose next time or Heartfelt Enchanted Mum flower. Hark at me, I only purchased this last week, so must have a play first. If the Enchanted Mum turns out badly can I over rule the decision and do a Classic Rose?
Have a good week everyone!
Anyway here goes the Gardenia
These are the items needed to make this flower. As you can see I have already cut the flowers.
Next stage, colour your flowers how ever you want.
One of the whole flowers, just snip a bit further down the flower.
Use your bull tool to break the edge of the fibres and to make them curl inwards
I then use the end of a paint brush to round the flowers petals outwards.
Next I use the same tool to just curl the corners to a point
Next, you need to turn the 5 petal die into a 4 petal, like I have done , and you are left with the 2 layers of the full petals, the newly made 4 petal and the open 4 petal now to be made into a bud
Now roll the four petal into a bud
Then place the bud into the 4 petal part of the flower, and cut the bottom off until flush
Then glue onto main flower.
Here are 2 different flowers. One is using all 5 petals of the die and one is leaving a full petal die off, so that it is not so compact. The choice is yours.
Hope you understood, and enjoyed the tutorial. If not you know where I am!!
