Hello and welcome...
It's so annoying when you have finished making a card to then smudge it just as you're ready to photograph it!  I caught the centre of 2 flowers leaning over to position my card which is why I have had to glue a huge black dazzler to the centre of one flower and there's a smaller centre just down from it that was also smudged...grrrr LOL
You will see what I mean now
  • the base is a white 5"x7" scalloped card
  • I cut mats and layers decreasing an eighth of an inch in sherbet and black foundation card by Creative Expressions
  • I then cut 3 circles from white card stock using the doubled pierced circles die set by SW for CE as a 'stencil'
  • this was then placed onto the top card 
  • I stamped the images using a flower stamp by CE with StazOn black ink 
  • as I already had Pixie Powder 'Sun Yellow' and 'Lava Red' in my painting palette I add a little water to activate the powders and coloured in the flowers
  • I used a Spectrum noir pencil 050 to colour the leaves
my apologies as I am unable to capture how pretty the pixie powders are, the mica in them really makes them shine and 'pop'
  • I stamped two freebie sentiments onto my card using a black StazOn ink pad
  • I attached a thin, white satin ribbon around the layers and adhered it to the card
  • to complete I added small, white flat back pearls in 3 places and Cosmic Shimmer Black PVA to all the centres of the flowers.... which is how I came to smudge the PVA glue and had to replace 1flower head with a black dazzler!
