Pure creativity, Alexandra! This card is exceptionally beautiful and unique. I especially love the bright color scheme and that black flower. Here is my take:
The flower was created by inking the flower die cut, Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals, with Black Soot Distress Ink and Sunflower Glimmer Mist. After crumpling and heating, I layered several petals together. A Candi Dot was added to the center along with twine. The orange/ yellow background was created by first stamping Penny Black Letter Background with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto yellow PB Mix and Match cardstock (removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping). Next I stamped Penny Black 40-046 Circular Design with Versamark Ink, sprinked with clear embossing powder, and heat to set. Finally, I applied Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink over the embossed area by pressing the ink pad directly to the paper. The torn cardstock was lightly inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink as well as Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges. This entire piece was layered onto black cardstock and then green PB Mix and Match cardstock. Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-032 Enjoy Life.
