Pink Dahlia

Another flower made from wafer paper.
Have I told you how lovely wafer paper is for making thin petals?
This time I hand painted the edges as well to give it a little more dimension.
Short and sweet.
The end!

Very pretty! The balls on the flower is that made from fondant/gumpaste? Did you attach those with Royal icing if so?

Sweet Regards -Carmen

Carmen - the center was made from different sized dragees that were painted with luster dust and vodka. The wafer paper gets so sticky with even the smallest amount of moisture that I just attached them with a dab of vodka. Hope this helps!
