Tutorial- Twisted Camelot flowers

This is my version of the Camelot Doop tutorial I found on Youtube by Jadedstudios.  

Here is the list of supplies I use:
distress ink
blending tool
crafting tweezers
heat tool 
any kind of shimmering spray
small retro punch for mini rose
2 -5 petal flowers at size of your preference. I used my cricut/gypsy, cartridge Wandering gypsy
2.44 in/width, 2.38 in/hieght
1-5 petal flower approx one inch smaller than the 2 larger. I used the same flower at 1.48 in/width, 1.44 in/height.
5 small retro flowers for the mini rose for center

I like to ink all the edges first with distress ink with my blending tool, and on the 5 retro flowers I do the backs as well.

I then spritz with water and the ink bleeds, giving it a soft blended look. Then blot of excess water.

Next, take your tweezers and twist each petal in the same direction.

It should look something like this.

Here comes my little twist that makes them abit different.  With both hands I use 2 fingers and push the flower towards the center and give it a little twist. If the petals tear a bit, its not a problem as you don't see it anyways.

Then it looks like this!  Now take your heat tool and dry it.

Do this to all three flowers.

I then make the mini rose, following which ever tutorial you choose, or using a Primi mini rose, inked, and remove the leaves.

I then spritz them all with a Shimmer mist.  On this flower I used Smooch Spritz in Spun Sugar. Dry with your heat tool.

I then assemble, alternating the petals and glue down with either Zip Dry adhesive or the glue gun.  This is the finished product!
