Flower Power...

This weeks challenge on My Time To Craft is Flower Power!!
'Use flower embellishments, rubber stamps, perhaps floral paper, or anything you can think of to do with flowers.'

I'm actually quite pleased with this, as quite often when I triple emboss, I get right to the stamping bit and it goes ermm...'pear shaped' !!!
Anyway...it worked out ok'ish'!
^.^


The base is glossy photo paper coated with Nick Bantock's Chrome Yellow...( I have to confess I prefer Nick's ink pads for this as I find it dries quicker) ... I've then wiped Jade Brilliance ink across the other way, making a chequered effect and stamped the daisy images randomly over the top in Yellow Brilliance.The topper is made from mountboard...embossed once using a Versamark ink pad and clear UTEE, then Jade Brilliance and another layer of clear UTEE and a final Versamark and UTEE layer. As soon as the top layer had melted I stamped the daisy image into it, having first inked it with Brilliance.I have mounted it onto foam pads for a bit of dimension... added the Happy Birthday words and a piece of yellow organza ribbon to finish it off. I have taken another picture, in better light, as the other one is a bit dark ^.^
