Instruc­tions:

Cut Flowers

  • Using Col­or­Box Flu­id Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown), ink the edges of each flower. After you are fin­ished ink­ing the flow­ers crum­ple each one in your hand and straight­en out just a bit. This will help cre­ate dimen­sion to your flower. Place flow­ers in a news­pa­per lined box or line your kitchen sink with paper tow­els. Using Maya Mist Iri­des­cent Pearl light­ly mist each flower, let dry slight­ly, now using Maya Mist Sparkling Sil­ver light­ly mist each flower once again, let dry. Once the flow­ers are dry accent the edges of each one using Plat­inum Stick­les, let dry

Lightly Inked and Crumpled Flowers

  • Using a liq­uid glue attach each flower lay­er on top of each oth­er as desired

Misted and Accented Flowers

  • Using the Martha Stew­art Seal Punch, punch a seal out of an old Book Page and attach to the back of the flower using. (This will give the Large Pearl Cabo­chon some­thing to attach to.)

Flower Back
