I am definitely not an expert, but those look more like small rosea without the center bud. It looks like they just cut lots of rose petals and overlayed them, but didn't do a full flower. I would suggest a tutorial like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzZY6NFyEkY, but just without the center and fewer outer petal layers to give it more of a "closed" bud appearance. Sorry I can't be of more help.

And that's "roses" not rosea. :)

Yes, I think it's just a fantasy flower, not supposed to look like anything botanically correct, and I think it is done with a 5 petal rose cutter and just kind of scrunched together?
