Delightful Flower

There are so many beautiful flowers in bloom during the spring and summer seasons that treat our eyes to a festival of colours and the Fritillary amazes me with its checked petals. Nature has created the most amazing patterns.

For the flower I stamped with black Versafine, embossed with clear powder and coloured with a Graph'it pen the colour is Bougainvillea which is a beautiful deep purple colour. I lifted a little of the colour near the tips of the flowers with Copic blender pen. I purchased the Nestablities 5x7 Elegant Labels set during the Summer and used it to cut out the flower panel and background from purple. I added a rectangle of white card and fixed it to a purple card. These dies are so detailed I only need to add a sentiment to the bottom.

Thank you for stopping by, Debbie

Your embossing of the VersaFine has given a lovely sheen to the image.Your lifting of the colour from the edges of the petals makes them look so realistic & one can imagine the light showing through them. The matting layers are striking indeed & I love the way those corner details not only have a floral bud silhouette but also mimic the 'v' shape of the Fritillary's petal edges.
