Punk Flower Tutorial

Voy a mostrarles como hice estas flores.  Hay muchos tutoriales con diferentes estilos para hacer flores, yo las trabajo de esta manera.

I will show you how I did these flowers.   There are many tutorials with different styles to make flowers, I work it in this way.

Materiales:    a flower punch- 3 flowers(2 inches)  1flower(1inch), a stick,  chalk ink(cat eye), embossing pad, spray bottle fill with water, heat gun.
Hacer "distressing ink" a cada petalo y luego con el palillo enrollar con cuidado cada petalo hacia una misma direccion en dos de las flores grandes y la pequeña.

Used Distressing Ink on each petal and then carefully roll them with a stick in the same direction on two of the big flowers and the small one.
Debe quedar asi...
It should look like this...
En la otra flor enrollar los petalos en direccion contraria.
On the other flower roll the petals in the opposite direction.
Debe quedar asi..
It should be like this...

Dobla cada pétalo hacia arriba, como en la foto.
Fold each petal facing up, like in the picture.
Rociarle un poquito de agua.
Spray  it with a bit of water.
Dejarlo secar o usa tu heat gun.
Leave it drying or use a heat gun.
Con cuidado dobla los pétalos.
Carefully fold the petals.

Coloca una flor encima de la otra con los petalos doblados en direccion opuesta.
Put one of the flowers on top of the other with the petals folded in opposite direction.
Debe quedar asi..
It should be like this...
Le añadimos la tercera flor y entonces le ponemos el centro de la flor (la flor pequeña).

Add the third flower and then  put the center of the flower (the small flower).

Y ya tenemos nuestras flores.   Espero les halla gustado, Gracias por pasar por aquí!
