Showering Flowers

Good Morning! I had a lot of fun playing with this card. I really haven't used the Flower Shoppe much and thought it would be nice to work with it a little more. It is really very easy to use and I enjoyed being able to put different pieces together. I worked with the sketch from Mojo Monday.


I chose to stay with more of a monochromatic theme and like how this one turned out. I inked the edges of the flowers then spritzed with Perfect Pearls. I then embossed with clear embossing powder. I also added a little bit of Glossy Accents. Okay, so I got a little carried away:)


I was really random in the way that I altered the 2nd layer. The largest flower has more layers of clear embossing powder and more speckled. I heated the embossing powder and spritzed Perfect Pearls.  As in nature, nothing is the same and I thought it would be fun to make them all a little different:)
