Happy Birthday flowers / leaves / medallion

Friday May 19, 2017
 
Well I was playing again in my craft-room.. I keep seeing so many medallion cards created and I knew I had a Stampin Up medallion and so I took an A2 size water color paper. I stamped the medallion and heat embossed with Simon Says antique gold. I then smooshed some Ranger oxide inks in blue, green, yellow on my craft sheet. I spritzed it with water and laid the water color paper in it. I then heated and spritzed with water and re-dipped in the spritzed watered down in and dried and kept doing this till I got the results I was pleased with. I then took my Paper Trey Ink flower die and cut out three sizes. I was going to use the stamp set with it... but I had so much going on with the background I didn't want the stamped flowers to be toooooo much.. So I just took some Ranger inks and sponged it on the flowers. I added a sequin to the center and added some Nuvo drops. I then added some die cut leaves by Stampin up.. (I do test kits for a local scrapbook company and I always have so many left over scrap pieces that are not big enough to use for backgrounds but perfect for small die pieces.. so I spent a long time die cutting scraps from the left overs from my cards and scrapbook scraps) I then took a Simon Says sentiment and using Stampin Up ink stamped and trimmed down and added. I added the flower and sentiment with foam dots.  I was going to add sequins to the background but again it's so busy with the medallion I didn't want to over do..  What do you think???
