Heartfelt Creations Botanical Garden Release

Good morning and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, today Heartfelt Creations is releasing their brand new collection "Botanical Garden".
The Botanical Garden Collection features 5 new precut stamp sets that coordinate with existing Spellbinder Rose Creations Shapeabilities and Spellbinders Foliage Shapeabilities.  The Botanical Garden Collection is a great addition to every floral lover's collection of flowers.
Leave a comment on my blog or the Heartfelt Creations blog by July 19 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $75.00. The winner will be announced on the HC blog on July 20.
Now for my project, I have a card with, yes, you guessed flowers!!!  I created the lacy brown edges with the "Lace Border" die, I love using this die, it adds the perfect touch to any project.

I used this beautiful image from the "Tropical Floral Swirls" set, stamped on watercolor paper and colored with watercolors and Inktense color pencils.  Outlined the design with gold paint.
Here are some close-ups of the flower, I stamped several sizes from the "Botanical Floral 1 & 2" sets, shaded with distress ink, added gold paint to the edge of the petals and shaped with embossing tools for dimension.  
For the center of the flower I used gold Gala Glitz and a gold adhesive pearl.

Well, that's it for today, hope you enjoyed my project and thank you so much for stoping by, if you have time make sure to stop by the HFC Blog and check out all the beautiful projects.  Have a great day.
