The card's not bad either, is it? (grin)
Have I inspired anyone else to look at their seed catalogs for inpsiration?
The flower was done by punching out 5 of the large petals from Very Vanilla card stock with the Blossom Petals punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I then stamped the petal image on each punched petal in So Saffron classic ink. Then I used my elegant eggplant marker to color the sides of each petal right up to the edge of the stamped image. I intensified the color by layering the marker coloring 3 times. Then with an aqua painter, I painted along the edge of the stamped image on the colored elegant eggplant area. This softens the edge of the marker lines and even lightens the color a bit.
I punched the large flower from the Boho Blossoms punch in Elegant Eggplant. I glued the petals to this flower then added the Build a Brad brad that I made with the flower center stamp from the Build a Blossom Stamp set and a 1/2 inch circle punch of Elegant Eggplant. I put this brad through the center of the flower. Then I took a second large flower punched with Boho Blossoms punch and glued to the back. I mounted the flower on the card with Stampin Dimensionals. I added a few Stampin' Dimensionals under some of the petals for more stability.
The Trim added to the card is Victoria Crochet Trim.
