Bouquet Rose - Flower Tutorial

Hi everyone, I just wanted to share another flower tutorial, this one is to create my "Bouquet" Roses...

For this one I have used Spellbinders Grand Peony Creations Dies.  I love the size of these... using the largest dies you can create a flower as big as the palm of your hand!!

For the Bouquet Rose you will need to cut 3 each of 4 consecutive layer sizes.  I have used the ones as shown for this tutorial... this creates a bloom about 2 inches wide.

Assemble the layers, smallest to largest, offsetting the petals as you go.  Secure with a brad...

Spritz with water, fanning to allow the water to fall between the layers...

Bring the layers up around the brad, one layer at a time, forming a 'bud' in the center...

Allow the top of the petals to fan out slightly, hold and 'squish' the layers together towards the base...

Once you have finished all the layers, dab the top with Mix'd Media Inx and then spritz with water to allow the ink to run, I use Jasmine as I like how the white softens the edge colouring.

Then gently help the flower open, keeping the petals quite tight near the center and more open towards the outside.

Dry it off with a heat gun {keep the gun moving so it doesn't burn the petals} or alternatively allow it to dry overnight.

Thanks for visiting, take care and be true to you.
