I used a double-masking technique to create the focal point for this card, so that the main stamped image came out as a relief. After using the masks to colour the background, I then subtly coloured the main image using Promarker and Flexmarker pens. Finally, I carefully painted gilding seize over the petals of the flower and applied a layer of clear embossing powder. (Take a look at my step-by-step tutorial on this double masking technique).
The chrysanthemum image was stamped onto a topper cut using the gorgeous Simplicity Doily Square die by Tonic Studios.
I made the Paper Roses using four layers of petals punched from Punched Petal Pairs, and accented them with glue and crystal glitter. You can see my signature hand-made decorative beaded hatpins peeking out from behind the roses. The leaves were cut using the foilage dies that come with the Tonic Window Basket die set.
The card base, patterned paper mat and vellum scroll background were all cut using my Cameo Silhouette, which, once assembed, I spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Angel Mist.
