Mother of Pearl flowers...
Another sample from my stamp shows last week this time using the August child and Larkspur elements stamp sets. I did demo this but I will give a quick run through never less lol
I stared by making the base for the flowers by squeezing onto acetate frosted Sky, Aqua and Heather PVA dimensional glue. Next I used a palette knife and spread the glue over the acetate which, when dry, makes a mother of pearl background which shows better in real one than the pictures. Next I stamped the larkspur flowers on the front and cut these out by hand ( fussy cut) which is a little more difficult than yesterdays flowers however its still a simple shape (ish).
I made a card black and panels using Sue Wilson's noble ornate pierced squares die and mounted the piece onto this.
I made the frame using the dies in the ornate pierced set and added these over a piece with the PVA added to make a deeper pearl background.
I made up the card as shown using the flowers around the corners for emphasis.
