After cutting out the flower shape she uses a sponge and roles it round the edges to make the smoother.
For the carnation Elaine cuts out three different sizes of the same shape. You don't need to smooth the edges of this one.
Unfortunately my camera didn't pick up the colour but this is what it should look like when finished.
Alison was the first to go up and have a go. She is currently smoothing the edges of the first flower shape.
