Embossed Flower Tutorial using Gelatos® from Faber-Castell®

Hi everyone, how was your weekend???
Wonderful I hope! 

Today I want to share a tutorial with you on some super fun and easy flowers 
you can make. There are lots of ways to color these, but the easiest 
and my favorite is by using Faber-Castell Gelatos®.
Here is a look at the layout I used the flowers on. 
Love this paper from MME! I also used Want2Scrap bling and chipboard.

Begin by stamping and heat embossing your flowers and cutting
 them out. I used Heartfelt Creations Open Vintage Floret
 Precut Stamp set and Vintage Floret Die set.

 I used 4 colors of my Faber-Castell® Gelatos® to color my flowers,

 Teal Metal, Blue Metal, Aqua Dolce, and Spearmint. I applied the

Gelatos® directly to the flowers, blending them with a slightly

damp sponge.

I kept adding color in layers until I achieved
the depth that I wanted.

Next up is shaping the flowers - real flowers have curved petals
and do not lay flat - we want our flowers to look the same.
 I rolled the edges back using my paper piercer and cupped
the centers using a ball tool.

Last step is to stack the petal layers together as desired,
pierce a hole in the center with your paper piercer,
and add a brad to anchor it all together!

Here are a few more close-ups of my layout.

For my title piece I covered the chipboard with Faber-Castell® Gesso mixed with some
Margarita Gelatos®. When dry I added more Gelatos® with a sponge, then added
some glitter for a little sparkle.
