EZ steps to make Classic Petunias

Summer has arrived in the craftroom! 
The Petunia flowers are so versatile and fun to use.
I've put together a quick tutorial to make some for you here:

EZ Steps to making the Classic Petunia flowers!
1. Stamp the flowers and leaves in brown ink, colour the leaves with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and die cut using the coordinating die.

2. Colour the flowers using the Precision Daubers and Memento Lilac Posies ink.
Color from the centre upwards on each petal using the edge of the dauber to create the shading. Shade the edges of the leaves with the Bamboo Leaves ink.

3. From the back of the leaves shape the edges of the leaves with the flower shaping tools. Turn the leaves over and press in the centre of the leaves to bring the leaves upwards.

4. From the back of the flowers shape the tips of the petals with a circular motion or for a more distressed look prod the tip with the tool three times.

Turn the flowers over and run the flower shaping tool down the centre of each petal. Place the whole flower over the tool and shape with your fingers.

5. Adhere prills to the flower centres and glitter the petals.
Use your flowers on your projects and have fun!

Layer them up or use them individually!
