Using the tattored floral sample die we received in our September Project kit, I created a Rose Tutorial. This is my spin on creating a rose with this die. I used the die cut pieces we received in the kit to trace and cut out, since I don't have this die.

Here are the supplies you will need

Step 1

Ink all your petals. I used vintage photo and antique linen distress ink.

Step 2

With your mini mister using water or a sheer glimmermist, generously spray your petals. Let the water absorb into the petals. 

Step 3

While petals are still damp, start crumbling them. Let set a couple minutes.

Step 4

Start arranging your petals. Layer by layer, turning one petals layer down and the next layer up. Continue to arrange your petals until you are satisfied with the result. 

Step 5

Using a dab of glue to each center of the layers, build your bloom. There are 4 large layers, 2 medium layers and 1 tiny layer.

Spritz a small rosebud with smooch spray, for the center of your bloom. I used black velvet. Secure medium layers to large layers to complete your rose bloom. You may also give a spray to your whole rose with glimmermist to finish. I used iridescent gold. 

Completed Blooms

Have fun creating coordinated custom blooms using your Swirlydoos Kits!
