Randomly stamp the smallest Flora Grande 2 flower with the Emboss Ink pad onto  a 5.1/2” square of white card, pour on Wow Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and carefully tap off excess, using Heat Gun heat until glossy.
With the blending tool and starting with Festive Berries Distress Ink blend two corners as shown in picture 1 below:
Now add peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the other 2 corners (use a clean pad for each colour if you have only 1 blending tool).
Now add Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to the middle of the image, blending it into the two previous colours.
Lay the backing paper onto a pad of Kitchen Roll, fill up a Mini Mister with water and spray the card with the water, do not over soak but add enough water to completely cover the card.  Leave aside to dry or heat dry with Heat Gun.
Once dry layer up the card onto Gold Mirricard and Blue Card leaving a small edge around them, adhere to your card blank.
Now Stamp your chosen image, I have once again used Scented Message (this is me being lazy the stamp was still on my desk), with  Emboss Ink Pad and emboss with Wow Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder.  Colour the image with your chosen colouring medium, I have used Distress Ink on mine and again mount onto Gold Mirricard.
Add Ribbon, Bow and Charm to base card and then using 3d tape add the image as shown
