1. Create a color fade with a No. 6 flat brush and green and white acrylic paints. Use a No. 2 flat brush and green and yellow acrylic paint to create two leaves.

  

2. Use a No. 4 flat brush and blue and white acrylic paint to create a petal in between the leaves.

  

3. Use the same method to create a second blue-and-white petal.

  

4. Use the same method to create a third petal, but this time use purple and white acrylic paint instead.

  

5. Accent the flower center with yellow acrylic paint. Use a No. 0000 Kolinsky brush to add black outlines, contours, and accents as shown. Use a dotter tool to add white dots as shown. Apply UV top coat. Cure.
