Flower Cards

Happy Sunday! We're off to church soon, but I wanted to post some more cards first!

These cards are inspired by the new Hero Arts 2011 Catalog, which is full of beautiful flowers. I just love this new flower stamp and it even comes in more than one size.

To make the flowers, just stamp the images on the watercolor paper, emboss with clear embossing powder, and color with distress inks (as much color as you can get on them). Next spray them a few times with Perfect Pearls Mist and let them dry before you cut them out. Perfectly shiny results!



Here is a close-up of the flower ( a little less shine on an angle):
