Moxie Fab World Fanatical about Botanical

I am loving the fanatical about botanical challenge over at Moxie Fab World. Me and my flowers are never far apart.

The peonies (Jumbo Cling Peony) are stamped in versamark and embossed using the new Aged Silver Enamel from Stampendous.  I love the new embossing powder and I am going to have to hunt up all the new ones as I saw Fran demoing them at the show and they were fun. 

The flowers were colored using glimmer mists and a water brush. The ribbon was died to match. 
The dragonfly (Dragonfly Vine) looks like an old fashioned hair pin.The dragonfly was stamped twice once on acetate and once on cardstock and embossed using the same embossing powder. 

The additional flourishes in the background are Class A Peel Stickers - Leaf Swirls. They were an easy addition to add a little leaf around the flowers. 

Around the edges versamark was sponged on and then embossed using the Aged silver enamel. 

Have a lovely Saturday!

  4. How lovely! I like the textures with the EP. Very pretty!

  5. totally stunning as usual Suzz. Love the way you used your EP to distress the edges. Must remember that one.

  6. Wow! This card is something, Suzanne! Love the embossing with those large florals, and the dragonfly looks like a piece of jewelry, rather than something stamped--so very pretty! I loved your latest CR84FN card, also. That image is too sweet and the bits of trim on the banner are such a sweet detail! I'm so glad you liked my watering can and so appreciate your visit!! Have a great week!!

  7. That dragonfly is amazing, I truly thought it was some type of hairpin and it's beautiful!!
