I used colors, images and layout…just about cased that photo!
The flowers are done with this procedure: first apply VersaMark to the image and before stamping apply dye ink, stamp, then clear heat emboss. The leaves were done with a marker.
Second step is to do polished stone over the entire panel keeping the top corner lighter so hit that area last when the ink is running out. I then buffed with a paper towel - the buffing helps take ink off of the embossing powder.
Third step is to add shading interest by doing the polished stone technique but I only used one color of brown and went down the left side and top right corner and buffed.
The gems are held on with Diamond Glaze. The light panel is sponged with tea dye distressing ink. Word Window and Slot punches are used for tabs and circle punch under the brads on the brown strip. Tool distressed the edges - someone may have to take that tool away from me…I love this distressing!

I couldn't wait to get home this evening to see what you did with this challenge.... Wow what a masterpiece! I didn't expect it would be less. When I saw this challenge this morning I knew it was for you. The colors, flowers, etc, etc..
