Imagination Crafts August Challenge - Flower Power

Hello again,

For this month's Imagination Crafts Design Team theme "Flower Power" Iv'e used an Imagination Crafts Decoupage stamp to create the flowers on this Notelet Hanger.

I used a small piece of mount board for this wall hanging which I painted with black acrylic paints. I then brushed over the background with beige paint roughly to create texture.
I then coloured some Sparkle Gel with yellow mica powders and spread this onto the Honeycomb Stencil to create a textured background.

I stamped the Decoupage Flower stamp onto green vellum, embossed the images from the back to make the petals stand out and added these to the bottom left of the card. I also stamped the image onto some yellow cardstock with green ink and wrapped this round a post -it note to form a cover. Two holes were punched into the top of the mount board and decorated ribbon threaded through to create a hanger.
