My First DT Reveal For Heartfelt Creations
"Treasure & Enjoy"

Hi friends thanks for stopping by.
Today I have my very first post as part of the NEW
I am so happy to be part of such a great team.

This layout was actually part of my DT application to them,
and here we are today & it is up on their blog. I am a happy lady.

I have hand made every single flower & leaf on this layout
using their "Sweet Peony" stamp sets & matching dies.

It is a bit hard to see in the photos but there is 
lots of glitter & sparkle happening here.

I have also used one of the larger stamps from this collection on my background, 
heat embossed to create a resist & then sprayed it with some Lindy's 
"Hottie Patottie Pink" spray to create a watercolour background.

All the gorgeous chipboard is from 2Crafty Chipboard.
I thought I would do it in plain black to make a nice contrast.

If you are interested, there is a full set of instructions below....

PARAGRAPH 1   Using the Small Sweet Peony stamp set & Black Soot Distress Ink, stamp several different flower images. Then  using the Classic Rose stamp set & the Black Soot ink, stamp four foliage flourishes. Be sure to stamp multiples of the medium flowers as we are going to layer those up.

PARAGRAPH 2   Die cut out all the flowers & foliage.  

PARAGRAPH 3    Using the above three coloured inks,  colour a selection of grey, black & pink flowers. Colour the four flourish foliage pieces with the black in making sure to leave the veining detail visible. Now turn them all over & give them a very light spritz with some water. Now using some flower shaping tools, shape all the pieces to give them a realistic look. The water will help make this process easier & it also helps them to maintain their shape once dry.

PARAGRAPH 4   Once all flowers are dry you can commence adding some sparkle. To all the black flowers add a little glue to their middles & add a sprinkling of black crushed glass glitter. To all the pink & grey flowers add some silver crushed glass glitter to the middles. If you don’t have any crushed glass glitter, then ordinary glitter would work fine.

PARAGRAPH 5   For a selection of both the grey & black flowers, randomly add a little glue around the edges of their petals & sprinkle with some “Sparkle Dust” or something similar. This has no colour so it takes on the colour of the flower & adds loads of sparkle & shimmer to your flowers. Set aside to dry.

Until next time....
