oak house alphabetical challenge

this is my entry for the alphabetical challenge over on oak house studio blog

I have used the english country garden word stamp, and the clematis tower.
I stamped the words and the tower in green ink, then painted the leaves in a pearlescent green paint.

then I stamped and embossed in gold powder the clematis tower 3 times, then coloured the flowers with purple pearlescent paint, and touched the stamens in yellow gel pen.

Next I cut all 4 towers out, glued the green one onto my card, then cut the flowers out and 
mounted on foam pads, then decoupaged some of the flowers and mounted again on foam pads,
and added a dragonfly brad to one of the flowers.
Then I put gold thread through the sentiment and added to the corner of the card.

oak house sunflower

This is a 6 x 6 card , I haven't put a sentiment on, so whoever buys it can choose what to put on.

I embossed a piece of card and then swiped  it with sepia ink, and placed on the front of the card.
next I used the bamboo trellis stamp from oak house studios, and stamped with sepia ink,
then cut a spellbinders scalloped square out of it. This was then mounted onto a square of gold mirri board
and the corners rounded, then this was placed diamond way up on the card.

I then stamped the oak house studios sunflower 3 times with the sepia ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, then coloured with mica paints and cut out to allow decoupage.
This was placed in the centre of the diamond and stacked with foam pads.
The card was then finished with gold candi in each corner
