I played with an idea I saw on Pinterest (Tina Daubaum)
Here I photographed it in the sun
I started by smooching some texture paste over a shiny white piece of card.
While it was damp I puffed some Color Burst paints onto this.
I added a few sprays of water to get the effect I wanted.
This became my background piece
You can see below that I then die cut several different square frames using my SU Squares.
I also die cut some Dynamic Gerbera's and some Cottage Cuts leafy foliage
from SU thick Very Vanilla
I sponged some TH Distress inks onto the flowers and leaves and layered up the gerbera's and then shaped them and the leaves
I like the way the leaves look so realistic here
The three layers plus top were layered with thin dimentionals
I love spiky gerberas
I added an SU sentiment and layered the whole onto a square vanilla commercial card blank.
This one was taken in the shade
I like the effect I achieved.
