I began with a square of Foundations Coconut White card and embossed it with a Couture Creations folder called Large Retro Flowers.
I used an acetate mask with circles cut out in three different sizes to lay over each flower and colour it. Beginning with Scattered Straw DI and the largest circle, then Wild Honey and the medium circle, followed by Rusty Hinge and the smallest circle.
Once the ink was dry I wiped over the panel with an anti static bag and using Single Stamp 'The Ex' I stamped my image in Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Detail Black powder. The image did not touch some of the card because of the embossing, if you want a clean silhouette then it is best to stamp before dry embossing your background. I was rather pleased with the 'Zoro' type mask that my lady is wearing as a result of the embossed relief, it wasn't planned but I like it.
I have added a red gem to the centre of one of the flowers to make it a little prettier and give the impression of a bullseye.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed on an off cut of Coconut White card, then trimmed to an arrow shape and mounted on foam pads across the top corner.
