I've seen a lot of cards in the new SU catalogue that have dots of cardstock on them & when I was making these flowers I punched some centers. Then I thought "Hey! I could punch lots of circles & put them on." It's a little time consuming, but it gives you something kind of different. Here's a tutorial, cause I just can't seem to make a card without one, lol. :0)
The center flower is the Friendship Blooms stamp (Saleabration set). I embossed it on Naturals White cardstock (Black craft ink & clear e.p.) Then I used Lovely Lilac classic ink to paint a wash on it. The two green flowers are cut out of a Stitched background emboss resist piece (made with Glossy white cardstock, Versamark & clear e.p. heated, then sponged with Mellow Moss ink.) Their centers are just circle punched SU lilac glitter & more of the ink washed cardstock (see tutorial above.) :0) I've scratched the back of the gem to make it look like a cracked glass gem.
Other card ingredients:
Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Almost Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant. Hand-dyed ribbon (Mellow moss 5/8 grosgrain.) Rub-on (Saleabration.)
Thanks so much for checkin this out! Happy craftin'
