It's time for our halfway reminder over at The Flower Challenge and my teamies have come up with some more amazing inspiration for you.
I decided to use up some flowers that I had stamped in black on white paper and fussy cut some time last year and which had been languishing in a pot on the bookcase. I think they are Chloe stamps and the smallest flowers are from a Dreamees set.
I painted the flowers with some diluted starlights paint, so they have a lovely shimmer to them. I also painted the edges of a piece of card with the starlights to give me a coordinating mat on my 8x8 card. I used a piece of white card on top of this which had been embossed with a free emobossing folder that came with my cut n boss machine. I arranged the flowers in a circle on the embossed card, placing large flowers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 if it was a clock face and then filling in the gaps.
I die cut Sue Wilson's faux quilled leaves out of green card and snipped them up and tucked them in being the flowers. I also cut the lawn lawn hugs out of the green and layered it up to add some dimension and added it to the centre of the flowers. I then added some bling from my stash to the centre of each flower and corners of the card. I still wasn't feeling the love for this card, so I added some details to the flowers using a white gel pen. Much happier with that. I hope this second picture shows some of the shimmer,
