Emboss Resist Flowers

Thought I'd just do a quick tutorial on how I used the emboss
resist technique to create flowers !!

For these flowers I used the following from Heartfelt Creations:
Arianna Blooms Die (for the stamens)

Other items I used: Clear emboss ink, White embossing powder, white card

Now to make the flowers!!!
First of all stamp the flowers and leaves onto 160gsm card and
heat emboss with the white embossing powder and die cut.

Using the Rose Coral Chalk colour the centres of the flowers.
Lay the colour down heavier in the centres.

Turn the flower over and gently spray with water.
(I usually do this away from the table, holding the flower in my
 fingers! but to take a pic I did it like this)

Using a small shaping tool randomly dot over the petals to 
break the fibres of the card down.

Now turn the flower over.
Take a petal and pleat it together to create a distressed look.
Sort of pinching it ......... 

Leave the flower to dry, it doesn't take long!
Now turn the flower to the back and in the base
of the petal roll a medium balled tool to create depth.

Turn the flower over and roll the tool around the centre so the leaves 
come up and create shape for the flower.

Now the leaves........
Stamp, emboss and die cut the same way as the flowers.
Using the Olive pastel chalk colour the leaf centres,

Turn the leaf over and shape.

Glitter the flowers petals 
I used Stickles glitter glue here  (Star dust)

Now you could leave them like this if you wanted.

Or ................. 
I die cut the centres from the Arianna Blooms and adhered them
with a pearl to the flower centres

Or ..........
Another option I used was to put beads into the flower centres

There are many other options you could use!
Have fun making flowers!!!
Here is a card I made using them !!
