As promised, here is the tutorial for the Gerbera Daisies. I was going to do normal Daisies, but I just wanted to add some color to them, so I modified them a bit to accomodate my taste. As always, feel free to do them to your own liking. If you want normal daisies, just omit the inking stage.
I started out by cutting the daisy design on the Art Philosophy cartridge on my Cricut. I tried looking for one on the Flower Shoppe cartridge, but it just didn't have enough petals for the look I wanted. If you don't have AP cartridge, and have Flower Shoppe, you can still use it. You just have to layer more of them on.
Next, I used Scattered Straw Disstressing Ink to blot the flower. As you can see, I like using makeup sponges better than the daubers. Personal preference. On this flower, you only have to do one side.
I then used the Vintage Photo Disstressing Ink to color the edges of the petals, this is to make it look like it's been out in the sun too long. It helps to give the flower dimension and realism. (Is that even a word?)
And here is the finished flower.
Next up will be the Calla Lilies. I love these flowers.
Thanks for looking!
