***New Flower Tutorial*** Contest Winner name!! "Savage Beauties"



I thought it was time for another flower tutorial for Swirlydoos, and I have 2 more up my sleeve. I was inspired by Prima's new Vivian Eliza flowers. I just had to create my own version. So here they are, and any one that comes up with a great name for them, and I choose that name, I will send you a custom pack of 3 of the yet to be named hand made flowers.
You must leave your suggested name here at Swirlydoos
So head on over to Swirlydoos and name that flower!!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
Product List

*Flower Punches in 2 sizes Large and Small similar to the ones shown (or electronic die cuts) the small one should have more than 5 petals for a fluffy effect
*Tulip Puffy Paint
*Heat gun
*tweezers (long handle) optional
*ink pad (coordinate color with misting spray)
* Glimmer Mist, Smooch, Moon Mist etc...(coordinate color with ink)
*adhesive of your choice (not shown)
*Spray bottle with water (mini misters are wonderful)
*tiny brads




Punch 2 of the larger flowers and 7 of the smaller flowers. I used the cream colored Bazzill cardstock from our add on card stock kit this month.




With your ink, just ink the middle of the larger flowers, just going slightly out towards the petals, but not to the tips.
Then spray your smaller flowers on both sides with your choise of color spray. I used Glimmer Mist in 2 colors.




While the smaller flowers are still slightly damp from your misting, start stacking them onto your brad staggering each flower as you go.
If they are dry, you can mist them slightly with your water mister'
Secure your brad.




Now starting with the top layer, gather your petals together and start pinching them upwards as shown, taking one layer at a time.





When you have pinched up the last layer, squish it slightly on top so that you are smashing the petals, and they will naturally curl inwards.




I scrunched one more than the other. You could take the petals apart a little for a looser effect.




Mist your larger flowers slighting with water and scrunch your petals to distress them a bit. I accordion pinch the petals slightly. Let them dry completely.




Glue the 2 flowers together staggering your petals. Then twist the top flower petals slightly for more dimension.





Now glue your smaller flower clusters to the middle of your larger flower.




Using your Tulip Puffy Paint, following the outline of your larger flower petals, squeeze the paint on the very edges of the petal in a thin line as shown. This is where the tweezers come in handy to rotate the flower as you go along the edges. Does not have to be perfect. The imperfections will really give it character.



Now, let the puffy paint dry slightly, 15 minutes or so. Then very carefully take your heat gun to the edges of the petals and using constant motion while your heat drying, watch the paint start to puff!! But be very careful, don't get to close or the paint or the paper will burn!!
When it is dry and cooled down, just touch the paint with a very small amount of ink. Just a touch.

I LOVE PUFFY PAINT!!!!




Just a few angles of the 3 I did. they really are fast and easy!! Have fun and show me what you can do!!
AND NAME MY FLOWER!!!!!
