Creative Expressions Tuesday

Hi there , I'm here again to share my latest design for Creative Expressions . I've gone all floral and pretty today. So here it is.

Maybe l'm being too hopeful but I decided to go with some very spring like colours when I made this card which is why I used purple and yellow . The embossed background was inked lightly with Lemon Meringue ink before being mounted on gold and then black card . 

I die cut two pieces of card and coloured them with Decadent Denim Gilding Wax before attaching them as shown . They will need trimming to fit . I then added some lace over the top .

I stamped and embossed in gold this design four times so that I could use one full design and cut up
the others as shown . I then painted the flowers using Irridescent Watercolour Paint making sure that the yellow toned with the yellow on the embossed card .
I painted another piece of card to tone with the purple flowers and stuck the main image  onto this card . Once the glue was dry l cut carefully around the design to create a border .

When I attached the cut out flowers I used dimensional glue and shaped them a little. The flowers on the main design have a second layer of flowers to give added dimension.

I completed the design with flat backed pearls coloured with alcohol pens to tone with the purple of the flowers.
So for this design I used the following Creative Expressions items :-
Stamps to die for --- Floribunda .
Die by Sue Wilson--- Diagonals- Labyrinth.
Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson--- Fine Finials.
Gilding Wax--- Decadent Denim .
Colour Cloud Blending Ink --- Lemon Meringue.
