Firstly I took my Mini Mix Designer Stencils and chose the dotty stencil to add Black inked dots using the Kaisercraft Mini Ink pad in Black. I also mixed the Orchid ink pad and texture paste together to make a coloured paste and used this with the same stencil. In addition I added some Gold Perfect Pearls in random places on the background.
Once these were dried I fussy cut many of the flowers from the Hydrangea Paper and arranged them on the background until I was happy with the arrangement and the stuck them down using Foam Mounting Tape for dimension whilst also tucking lots of gold thread behind the blooms.
I then mounted my photo on Elephants Ears Kaisercard and cut several small roses on my cutting machine (any die cut flowers would work between the floral arrangement). I then mounted the photo in amongst the blooms and added a few of the Amethyst and Misty blooms, together with some wood veneers from several collections. I also mixed several pieces from the collectables pack in amongst the layers too.
To finish I added Disco Ball Stickles for added sparkle and a few plashes of black ink randomly splattered across the page.
It was fun to try some new techniques.. I hope you’ll give it a go too?
