***Fantasy Daisies Tutorial***

Product List:

Tim Holtz Tattered flowers Die
Foam Ink Applicator
Quilling tool
small daisy punch
McGill starburst punch
Stylus tool set or small ball stylus
chalk or distress ink
McGill foam pad or mousepad (not shown)

Step 1.)
*Die cut 2 of the daisy shaped Tim Holtz flowers
*2 of the starburst puches
*1 small daisy punch
* Cut a 3 inch strip 1/8 inch wide piece of cardstock the same color as the starburst

Step 2.)
Using your smallest stylus, make ridged lines along the underside, down the length of each petal on the flowers. Be careful not to press very hard as you will tear the paper. 3 lines on each petal is all you need.
Step 3.)
Using your foam applicator, load a small amount of ink onto the foam and brush the topside middle of the flower extending out slightly towards the petals, but use a very light touch as to only ink the ridges on the petals. Use the same color as the starburst shape you punched out.

Step 4.)
Layer your 2 daisy flowers together staggering petals.
Layer your 2 starburst punches staggering them as well. Use your quilling tool to roll the card stock strip tightly and glue the end. Adhere the rolled up strip to the small daisy punch.
Step 5.)
Now layer the flower from bottom to top...
Large flower on bottom, starburst on top of that and lastly your small daisy with rolled strip on top of starburst layers.
