Watercolor crayons and mist bottle were used to create the floral panel; also the finger walking technique with the Linen background was used.
Finger walking: after the image is inked lay it rubber side up. Place the floral image panel on the rubber and walk your fingers over it to avoid a full coverage. I did make sure that all edges were inked. Last step was to ink distress the edges.
The cuttlebug swirls were sanded down using a sanding block then ink distressed so it coordinated better with the light beige cardstock. The purple paper is a white core paper. What is white core you asked: it is purple on both sides with white in the center.
Ribbon is tied first and tape to the back with single sided tape.
The gems are attached with Diamond Glaze; it’s the same product as Stampin Ups Crystal Effects.
Tool distressing was done on the dark purple panels.
