Weekend Sketch Challenge #45

This is my card for Beate's WSC #45. The flower on the card is from an idea I saw at the Glitter Pot - my local craft shop.


The stamp is by Penny Black and is called Dotted Petals. I stamped it in Versamark, onto Scrapbook Walls Fawn Vine patterned paper, and embossed with gold powder. I then stamped it four more times onto a green patterned paper (sorry, can't remember the name of this one) also with Versamark and gold embossing powder. I cut out each of the flower images from the green paper, and one set of leaves. I curved the petals with my embossing tools, and used silicone glue to 3d the petals onto the main image. Two layers were put directly on top of the original petal postions, and two layers were twisted around a little before sticking down. Dotted Gold Stickles glitter glue on the petals and stamens, and finished with a flat backed pearl in the centre. The flower image is matted onto a scrap of gold card, and finished off with green satin and sheer cream ribbon.
The backing card is Green Bazzill Basics - I really must learn to note the colour names of them! I scored two lines with my scoreboard, and embossed just three lines of dots with the Swiss Dots folder above and below the score lines. I embossed a scrap of gold card with the Script folder and slightly distressed the long edges. Ran a thin line of Stickles Gold along the edge of the score lines.
