EMMA***Swirlydoos***

Still creating LO's from Swirlydoos August kit "Shabby Ambition". The Beloved papers from IOD are just beautiful. I want to thank Lisa, (kaye222) for pointing me in the right direction on the leaf stamps...I love them!! Thank you so much!! They are from Heartfelt Creations. The photo is my GF's daughter Emma. She had been picking flowers and dandelions. I used 3 different colors of Glimmer Mist to color the leaves and give them depth. I made the larger flowers using my new McGill 2.5" Floriano Flower punch using white textured card stock, misted them lightly with water, wrinkled them a bit for more texture and curled in the ends.I punched the medium retro Punch for the middle and topped the flowers with pearl brads I found in the bridal section at Michaels. The butterflies can be found among the files I create and share at Swirlydoos. I printed this set on 5x7 antique colored card stock, and used Rock Candy Stickles for glimmer. I edited the photo in PhotoshopCS using the Kubota action Chocolate Syrup and added a faint white vignette.
