A bit more details on how I created the flowers, whenever I cut something out for the first time I cut it from plain white cardstock to make sure the size, cut etc is right. So the larger poppy is cut from white paper that I colored with orange ColorBox ink after I had all the petal part assembled I sprayed it with Oriental Poppy Glimmer Mist. The smaller poppy was cut from bright orange card stock, then sprayed with the glimmer mist, the smaller one is a bit deeper orange but amazingly close being that they were cut from way different papers. The center of the flowers were both cut from white cardstock and inked to make them brown.
I did "rough" up the petals a bit with one of those thingies with the ball on the end, just kept rolling around on the petal till the paper (on a foam pad) soften up a bit and made it easier to shape
