How to Create Gorgeous Subtle Edges to your Flowers

Posted on

Hello everyone, its Melinda here for another step x step tutorial using some Shimmerz products and the gorgeous Manorhouse Creations flowers to create a soft and subtle edge to your flowers.

Step 1 – Firstly I have chosen a beautiful white flower to alter from one of the very first MHC release….Cottage Garden – Morning Glory,  teamed up with some Shimmerz Colouringz – No Yoking. Isn’t this such a striking colour!!?.


Step 2 –  After I sprayed the flower, getting into all the folds, I gently painted on some Shimmerz Pearlz – Golden Wheat…this adds such a stunning sparkly touch to your flower.

Step 4 – The next step is to touch this flower up with a little colour just to the edges of the petals.  I have used some Shimmerz Blingz – Under the Sea.  So with a fine pointy paint brush I just dipped it into the pot.  With this one I didn’t stir the Blingz, I just used the coloured water that sits on the top.  With a little of this on my paint brush I just went around the edges of the petal and as soon as the brush met with the petal the blue started to soak in and change colour to a blue/green.  It is a really gorgeous effect.

(please excuse the condition of my pots…I get a little excited when I play around with these products…hehe!)

So how sweet is that little flower… here is the full layout where I used these.

Scooter Fun… Also using some Fairy Floss – soft blue which I have also sprayed with some Shimmerz Colouringz.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you feel inspired to give this a go.
