I started by matt & layering Gold and custard card, then made another layer slightly smaller with black gold and custard and both the custard card I embossed with Rambling Rose EF. I stamped the focal point with perfect medium and used black embossing powder and heat set it. I then coloured it with mica powder. I then added two of the Lattice arched adornment and hooked them over the top and the bottom of the focal point. I stamped the word friend and cut it out and while still in the die I coloured it with wild honey distress ink I also went around the edge with black ink to keep to the colour scheme. I cut several layers of the peony die and tried to mimmick the flowers in the stamp. I cut several dandelion clocks and maidenhair fern and arranged them around the flowers. I added some butterflies from my stash and added pearls to finish.
Hope you like this one too.
Have a good week, hope to see you again soon
Love & Hugs
