Handmade Flower Tutorial

Happy Monday Morning.  I'm so excited to share a great new tutorial with you using Paperclay® and Prickley Pear Stamps.   I'm going to show you how easy it is to create these elegant flower/blooms.


First step is to gather the supplies above, Don't forget your favorite Prickley Pear Stamp Sentiment!


Roll out a thin sheet of Paperclay® and cut out your flower petal. This is actually a die cut used for making sugar paste flowers and you can find them in many larger craft stores.

Layer two petals and press down with ball tool. This will make the flower cup inward.

Pinch your third petal inward and glue into the center of your flower. This will give that full look in the center of your flowers.

Flower before coloring


Spray your flower with base coat of glimmer mist.


 
Take a dry paint brush and lift some fairy dust on the bristles then sprinkle wet flower with fairy dust


Spray again with glimmer mist to make the fairy dust run and blend.




Let dry and you have a beautiful finished flower to add to your projects.  Now stamp your sentiment from Prickely Pear...I used FIND WHAT YOU SEEK and you have a beautiful card in no time...plus it's a one of a kind for sure.
