I used a page from an old book for mine. Don't worry, it was an old dictionary that a lovely craft-appreciator gave me from a market stall. He couldn't sell it and when I explained what I wanted it for he just gave it to me...I was so chuffed! Anyway, I am drivelling!
I stamped a largish flower image in raspberry ink and cut out. Then I screwed it up in a ball, opened out and rubbed the creases with red gold brilliance ink. I made two, glued them together in the centre and then added some micro beads in the centre.
While I was at it I did the same with a couple of strips of the printed paper to go on the card. I used a lovely flourish stamped in the red gold brilliance again and coloured a little bit in blue/green pen to match the centre of the flower.
Thank you so much for looking, I really appreciate all your comments XXX
