40 Watt Flowers



     We've set you a real challenge this time at The Male Room, we would like to see you make flowers masculine. The DT have come up with some ideas to help get you started.
     Chocolate Baroque have some great steampunk style flowers, this set is called Punky Flowers, it's been out a couple of years but is still available.
     This flower spray has been stamped and embossed in silver on black card. I have used Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints to colour them in. I have the original single pots, they now come in a pallet but they are the same thing, repackaged and just as gorgeous.
     I wanted to pick out the blue so I used a layer of pearl paper to mat the image panel on before putting it on to an embossed mirri layer. The silver mirri was rather bright so I have used some black acrylic paint dabbed on to age it and dull it down a bit. I had to use redline tape to stick this on as the mirri card is very shiny and I needed a firm fix.
     I have coloured a white card blank with Distress Ink Black Soot around the edges, let it dry and then added my mirri panel on top so it looks like it's on a black card. This makes it easier to stamp inside when I decide what to use it for.
      Please come and join us at The Male Room, we would love to see what you create.
