Flower Power

I just received my new Poppystamps dies today so decided to make a
card just using them.
Stitched Bloom Trio and True Love Stem are my dies
cut with bright cardstock. A butterfly had to be added for the flowers. These were then placed onto my background
made with acetate, alcohol inks and tissue paper, with a touch of glitter added.
No image this time just dies...



Here is a link if you want to try using alcohol inks and acetate with tissue paper
[called "Caught In Crystal" technique"]

What splendidly colourful delight! I've seen your background technique done before but it's never looked as good as yours especially with the glitter, fabulous background. The dies are wonderful and make such lovely flowers and foliage. The butterfly and glittery centres of the flowers are just the ticket to finish off your fantastic creation. Debra x
