Ok, hopefully 3rd time is a charm. Lost this the first 2 times. (along with 15 or so great comments)
Anyhow....I am so STINKIN PROUD of this card I refuse to give up. It really does seem to glow in real life
I inked the flower in WW craft, kissed onto uninked paisley, stamped the image from the paisly stamp onto the More Mustard CS. Then I heat embossed with clear EP, and used sponges to add the color around the flower, starting with More Mustard, then working in Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, and Ruby Red in towards the center. I used a flourish from Elegant Flex. Phrases for the center, I wiped the blossom off with a baby wipe after to make sure that there was no ink left on it.
if you find me case-able, throw out a little "props"...just trying to build my stampin' confidence

good thing you didn't give up on getting this card loaded and stayin' put! it's gorgeous! love the technique you used. thank you for explaining the steps! I love the glossy-ness of the paisley blossom and love how the color seems to come from behind....darker near the center and lightening as it expands. Very nice job! I don't have this set yet but when I do I will definitely case this!!! TFS!!
