So where are the Gum Drop Gang you ask?
Actually I only used the verse that comes with this plate #15 by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The abstract-looking flower image you see is where I put some pretty Marigolds
between my Cuttlebug plates C and B (no embossing folders used) on top
of a piece of white cardstock by Cryogen and ran it all through the
I ended up with a splash (in more ways than one which I will tell you about next!)
of color in the shape of a flower. I only used black Memento ink for the verse, no other ink was used.
I scraped off the petals after it had all dried and overstamped the verse.
I will dry the flowers a little first next time as they were so wet it literally
SPLASHED onto my embossing plates and had to be scrubbed off!
The Cryogen paper has a glimmer to it that really is lovely
against the splashy flower imprint I think.
What do you think??
Thanks for looking!

What a cool idea ... into my favoritesthis one goes ... never would have thought about squishing plants for a design element. Wonder what a different type of flower would result in ...(hmmmm). Now I will be looking at the plants in my yard a whole new way and (BONUS!) probably drive my kids batty. TFS!
