Botanical Bliss Flowers and Calligraphy Essentials - Pretty in Pink and Gold

Well I had a blast creating this little beauty.

It took me a little while because I had to cut a few masks by stamping the flower onto some Post It Notes (ones that have adhesive across the whole of the reverse side), and then fussy cutting them.  I stamped, masked and heat embossed the collection of flowers in gold embossing powder.

Then I selected my Light Old Olive and Light and Dark Lovely Lipstick Blends Marker Pens.  I very carefully coloured in the petals and leaves.  If you are not careful and colour all over the gold embossing, I found the bright embossing dulled.  So just lightly applying and building up the colour was the way to go.  Nice small and gentle strokes.

When I had finished the flowers I had to decide on a sentiment.  I wanted something big but not too overpowering.  Calligraphy Essentials fitted the bill perfectly.   I decided to apply a few sparkly sequins for added texture.

There is something just really pretty and feminine about the card that really appeals to me.   I do hope you like it too.

Thanks for taking a look and I would love you to pop back again.

Bye for now
