I had created another floral panel based on the inspiration photo at the Uniko blog. This time, I stamped my floral images (SugarPea Designs set from the SOA Beautiful World collection) in Versamark onto watercolour cardstock. To determine the placement of my watercoloured circles, I stamped the images through a stencil (Ring cluster by Simon Says Stamp) and heat embossed in white embossing powder (SSS). I worked in smaller sections, watercolouring a batch of circles through the stencil, before moving the stencil to a different part of my panel and stamping and heat embossing the next batch. After my panel was done, I removed the embossing using a craft iron and paper towel. I cut my frame from SSS grey cardstock using the 5.5 x 4.25 inch die from the Avery Elle custom panels die set and the scalloped die from the SugarPea Designs die set from the previous SOA collection. Before adhering the frame to my stamped panel, I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the SP stamp set in white onto a strip of vellum and wrapped it around my panel.
After mounting my panels onto a white cardbase, I added a few sequins from the Muted Metal mix from Lucy's little things.

LIM - 280 Faux bleach (although the technique I used for my card was inspired by the LIM challenge, I'm afraid that my card turned out to be somewhat lacking in the white space department)
