Hmm - not so sure about how this turned out. But I know I'm not good at sponging, so why would I be any better at daubing? Still, it was fun to try, so thanks Lynn for giving us this technique to try today.
I had flowers in mind, so when I went to choose some acrylics I thought violets, and chose Grape, Hunter Green and Periwinkle, and gold or silver for my metallic - went with gold in the end. I followed the instructions as Lynn described them on the TLC thread for today. I made a bigger sheet and trimmed it down.
My base is A2 gold card. Then my faux handmade paper layer. My main panel is a Magenta vase stamped twice on purple card, once for layering up. This panel was matted onto some dark green Bazzill. My flower stems are flower wires from a cake shop coated with glue and then Fuchsia Flower Soft. I cut a slit in the top of the cut-out vase, threaded my stems and leaves through and taped them on the back. The centre of the vase has a bit of foam tape in it, while the edges are all stuck down to the base layer. I added a couple of little snaps and stuck it to the base. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, stamped with purple onto a scrap of blue Bazzill and cut with the Ribbon Tags from Spellbinders. I tied it on with some gold organza ribbon, and that's it.

Oh Sabrina, I do love this purple vase and the flower soft looks gorgeous. Love how you worked the faux handmade paper technique. Love that sentiment and ribbon, oooh the gold is perfect with your purple. TFS, hugs.

Sabrina, this is so pretty. I like the way you used the flower soft to match the background. I like the colors that you used. I like the gold ribbon. The way you stuck the flowers into the pot adds a really nice dimension.
