Altering and Enhancing Flower Tips

Hello everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I get lots of lovely compliments on my flowers and questions regarding the diversity of them. I'd like to share with you how I altered the three focal flowers on today's card to coordinate with my colour scheme. It's a very easy technique to enhance your flowers to give them more depth.
The three flowers I have here are all by Prima Marketing and can be purchased HERE at McMahon Five Designs store. The large pink is Pima Lilies, purple Prima Daisie and Gypso Peony. I used my little finger sponge dauber by Tsukineko and Dusty Concord Distress Ink by Ranger and I lightly dabbed just the outer edges of the flowers. While still wet I used water in my mini mister also by Ranger and spritzed the flowers. Here is the results.

Here I have the original flowers on the left and the enhanced to the right.

After your flowers have completely dried you can enhance them even more by using Stickles, glitter, Glimmer Mist or even Diamond Dust. On today's card I used Gold Stickles which can also be purchased HERE in McMahon Five Designs store.
I'll be posting my completed card later on today.
Happy Creating! Hugs Bonnie :O)
