Less is More #172

The challenge this week at  Less is More has the theme - flowers!  How lovely!  My entry is my effort following a video tutorial by the very talented Therese for Scrapbook boutique.  You can check it out here.   In the tutorial, Therese used the beautiful Delicata gold ink for her flower, but in the absence of that particular ink (it would be awesome to own everything wouldn't it???) I used my little tear drop by Brilliance in Galaxy gold, quickly sprinkling clear embossing powder all over the die cut by Memory Box (Peony) as it is a quick-drying pigment ink, and heat embossed it.  In real life, it gives a beautiful textured finish which is very pleasing.  I scribbled and blended the colour from a few Distress markers for the bloom and single leaf outline and adhered the die cut over these.  The sentiment by Paper Smooches is also heat embossed in the same gold ink.  I mounted my water colour panel over a mint-coloured card, after wrapping a mint green ribbon around it.  It is a great technique to try, and I intend to do quite a few more using any open outline die I can find!
