Princess for a Day

Hi everyone Monica here with a first Paper Nest Dolls flower tutorial.  I created this card using one of the new releases from the Fairytale line she is "Frog Princess". This is a series of differnt flowers you can make for your cards whether it is something simple or very ornate.

You can use any flower cut this is a 6 petal flower
 I cut a tiny slit between each petal and ink the center with any type of ink - distress inks work extremely well as the ink spreads with the water
 Spritz each petal and use like a paintbrush, pen etc.. and pinch each petal
 Emboss and mold each flower and here you see how the petals turnout after your scrunch and wrap them over the tool
 I stagger 3 layers and for the center I cut out petal off and glue together to form a tighter center
 Here are the flowers up close laid out on the card.  I will post another tutorial on the smaller blue flowers ext time! So be sure to check back with the Dolls!

Simply Monica
