Coral Golden Dreams

I made this for my daughters birthday. I used Heartfelt Creations products. I love working with these awesome products.

My finished card is 5X7. The background layer is a watercolored piece from my stash. I added some Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Abandoned Coral, Candy Apple Red, Scattered Straw and a gold watercolor from Kuretake on my mat. Then spritz with water and smoosh the watercolor card into it until happy (dry between coats).

Cut 2 Eyelet Diamond dies out of mirror cardstock. Also cut the center of the Lacy Diamond dies 2 times from white glitter cardstock. Glue the white on top of the gold. Adhere the two diamonds diagonally on the background.

I used the leaf cluster 3 times from the Classic Rose Vines stamp and die for the flower base. I would have used the Leafy Accents with the 3D mold but couldn’t find my dies. I did include the links below. Stamp the vines with Memento Bamboo Leaves and sponge with a dauber Color Box Guacamole, over the leaves. Dry brush a little Pebeo Rich Gold paint randomly over the leaves then shape them using the Flower Shaping Essentials. I cut each branch in half and arranged diagonally across the card to use under the flowers. I was sure to have some curly Q’s in each corner.

To finish the leaf layer, I added a couple flourishes from Ariana Lace dies.

I tried using watercolor paper for my flowers, it is thick but worked great. Stamp, color and cut 2 sets of Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamps and dies. Color the first set with Zig Markers, dark yellow in the center and a dark pink on the edges. I used a water brush to blend the 2 colors together. Repeat using purple and teal.

Next layer the flowers in the 3D Blossoms Shaping mold colored side down and spritz lightly with water. I ran mine through a Spellbinders die cutting machine, no shim needed. This mold is awesome! If you want, you can color the petal edges. To keep with my gold theme I added  bit of Pebeo Rich Gold paint (I applied with a micro brush).

When the flowers are dry simply press in the centers using a shaping tool, front side up and assemble.

Once assembled add a light coat of glue and add Glass Shards or glitter. When dry cover the petals with a glossy coat. Apply a big dollop of glue to flower centers and add gold Prills. Assemble and adhere arrangement on the leaves. I filled in with a few Lilac flowers and added a sentiment tag.

Attach the entire panel to a 5X7 card base using double sided tape. It is easiest to apply the tape to the card base.
