More Flower Altering by Guest Designer Nicole Doiron

This is our second post today.  Please scroll down to view our previous post.

We're back with another awesome tutorial from My Creative Scrapbook Guest Designer Nicole Doiron featuring our April Limited Edition kit.
Here's Nicole:

Another flower I created is this one used on my Hello Kitty layout:

I picked apart the big yellow flower from Prima that came with the kit, just taking off the petals one by one, and saving the center part to make another flower.

I then cut a v-like shape into all the petals so that they resembled hearts.

Using only the striped petals, I inked them all with some distress ink. (The plain yellow petals were used to create the flower on my Happy Birthday card which I made following this same technique.)

I punched a circle out of some scrap paper and covered it with glue tape.

The circle serving as base for my flower, I proceeded to scrunch up each petal and stuck the larger ones around the base, then added the smaller ones with glue dots to form a second layer.

I then scrunched up the entire flower and molded the petals into shape. I added some more distress ink.

I used a large pearl (not included in the kit) as the center of the flower, and then added some clear and yellow Stickles on each petal, adding some to the other yellow flower in the kit.
