Garden Moments

I wanted to try this technique for some time. I picked pink and red geraniums to try it out, which entailed running the flowers through your Cuttlebug on watercolour paper. I did several different ones, and for a few I added a spritz of water. The flower above is a pink geranium with no water added. I love the soft look. When stamping my sentiment, I used my MISTI to ensure my stamp was in the correct place and to ensure I could ink my stamp several times, as I was stamping on watercolour paper. For the sentiment I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peeled Paint, and attached my piece to complimentary matting and then to my embossed card base.  
This is a close up view of my flower stamping. I gave this card to our gardener as I think she would love it.
Thanks for having a look today.

Oh, Kia, this is beautiful! I love the soft colors of your pressed flowers, and what a fabulous embossed background with just the simple stripe of matching color and -- of course -- your delightful sequins! Beautifully done, sweet friend! Hugs! xoxo
