Floral Watch...

Happy Thursday,

The card I am sharing today is a mix of styles and hopefully shows how mixed media style can be pretty and elegant.  Here I have mixed my Time Flies die set with the Gerbera daisy stamp and die set to make a classic look.

I stared by naming the background using a stamp made from my cogs die set and funky foam.  I heat set these with ultra which embossing powder and added mica to give the colour.  I demonstrated this technique on my last hochanda shows which you can see on rewind.

I stamped and die cut the Gerbera Daisy and coloured these using yellow and red pigment inks before shaping the flowers and adding micro beads in the centres.  I added these over the Swirl leaves die cut in gold pearl card.

I the  added  pocket watch made in silver and gold pearl card using my time flies die set tucking this behind the leaves and flowers.
