Creating Your Own Flowers Tutorial
Hello everyone. Tonight I would like to share a simple little way to alter your flowers to make them look a bit different. I am going to make a card & I don't have the right sort of flower so I thought I would make my own. For this flower you need 2 large size Green Tara flowers, one Green Tara Cherry Blossom (for the centre), an ink pad & a stamp of your choice.
Next stamp the petals with a good quality ink in a random fashion. You don't have to be to fussy as the petals won't be flat like this when you finish. The trick to making the finished flower look good is to have one petal facing up & one facing down when you stamp. (If you look closely at the photo below you will see how one of the petals curves up & one curves down).
Now glue the one that curves up, on top of the one that curves down, making sure to offset the petals. Lastly glue the small Cherry Blossom flower into the middle to create a nice flower centre.
Here you have the finished flower. Doesn't it look great & it is a fraction of the cost of some of the well known brands. Have fun experimenting with your stamps & our great Green Tara flowers & see what you can come up with. If you have done something creative with our flowers & petals we would love to see them. Just email us. I will share another idea for altering our flowers next time. Stay tuned. Cheers Di xx
