Let's see three dies or punches and a sentiment..., yep, I think there are that many -lol. Glad it wasn't to limit it to three!
Where I was headed when I started this is miles away from where it went, but this is one of my favorite cards! Amazing what happens when you think to yourself "Wonder what would happen if..."
I have some pearl embossing powder I had never used, but I was playing with it using a stamp I can't send to Houston and it was gorgeous! SO I thought I would try it on this Framelits set just to see how it looked. Then I decided I would try my hand at using my watercolor pencils to color them sorta like pansies.The first one was awful, so I decided purple on bright yellow cs wasn't going to cut it and went with oranges/reds. Okay, looks pretty good, but.. Of course! Needs some Distress Ink!
When I finally got the flowers put together with the centers popped on foam tape and arranged, I glued them in strategic places to keep the arrangement and adhered them to the oval layer, comprised of an oval diecut from dp and mounted to a Floral Ovals frame with mounting tape. I have such terrible luck with ribbon and bows that I used a narrow strip of cs instead to place behind the ovals. It was punched with a small scallop edger.
The sentiment was stamped on matching dp, embossed, diecut and adhered to a layer matching the Floral Oval. It was attached to the card base with mounting tape.
Thinking it still needed just a little something, I added the small yellow half-pearls on each end of the Floral Oval. These are some of my favorite dies!
