Layering the elements from this set is a lot of fun and it will give you beautiful dimensional results. In this card I stamped the flowers and the leaf on white card stock which I had previously speckled with Gold color shine. I colored the flowers partially with Copic markers, then trimmed them and arranged them on a cream card stock using layers of foam tape.

The delicate details of these flowers can be well appreciated when you white emboss them on vellum. Here I white embossed the images on pink vellum, trimmed and layered them using clear glue. The sentiment was also embossed in white but on a piece of baby pink card stock.

You can color these flowers using any medium of your choice; markers, inks, pencils, etc. Here I water colored them by first stamping on a piece of water color paper using Distress inks. Given Distress inks' amazing quality, I was able to then draw the ink from the base of the petals using a wet brush. To finish the card, I mounted the panel on a piece of shimmery gold card stock, and embossed the sentiment in gold.

The contrast between those richly colored flowers and the subtle border background really brings this card to life! Notice that the smaller flower in the set perfectly matches the inner layer of the large flower which makes it easy to trim and layer.

I hope that this set will help you explore your creativity, for there are so many possibilities. I can not wait to see what you make with it!
