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
