Every Flower is a Soul

Hi Bloggers.

Back to Sunkissed Fleur and a Burst of Splendour today.

The background is simply a piece of Milk Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Flint Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Garden Sayings Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Splendid Circles out of purple card. Don't the 2 circle sets work well together?

For a change I made a flower out of Felt I got from Sam Poole here. I used the Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur Die (don't emboss). The felt cuts really easily. I layered up 3 different sized flowers securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and added a Frosted Violet Dazzler.

I stamped some leaves from the Hearfelt Creations Open Leaf Stamp Set and the Classic Leaf Stamp Set using Olive Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using the Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
