Perfect Petals

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend, it seems a bit dull here, but at least that's great for crafting we don't have to go outside ha ha.

Well today I have a card to show you that I started making yesterday I wanted to use the Dreamees stamp set Perfect Petals available here, it is so versatile as you can make lots of flowers with the shaped petals and also can double up as leaves.

I started by stamping all the petals with a  versamark ink pad, then embossing with cosmic shimmer embossing powder true white, I then cut all the petals  out and stamped again over the top of each one with a small butterfly stamp also embossing again with true white powder, then the smaller petals I stamped with a small flower stamp, I then coloured on the back of the stamped image on the  vellum using a pink promarker to shine through onto the right side also still leaving the image lines of the stamp.
I then arranged the petals to form a flower of two layers of the bigger petals and 2 layers of the small petals, then using pinflair glue I layered them on top of each other leaving to dry overnight.
I have then cut a piece of vellum to go over my card blank stamped the small flower and embossed again in the true white, as you can see I love this embossing powder its so delicate, then used the same promarker and coloured on the reverse like before.
I have also used swirls from the tonic dies Frond Finese in silver mirror card to embellish. Before I stuck the sheet of vellum to the base card I glued the flower and swirls on to it then I could see where to add glue to the sheet so it wouldn'tshow through the vellum on to the right side. Also to finish I coloured a Dreamees pearl with the same pink promarker and added this to the centre of the flower.

I hope you like this card it is very simple to make with such a delicate finish.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.

Have fun
