Splattered Coneflower

Hello. I have a card to share today using a die set I’ve been wanting to use for ages, and some gold splattering.

I die cut a honeycomb layer from a Honey Bee Stamps layering die set, only using two of the layers. Once adhered to the white card base, I splattered with Liquitex acrylic ink – the metallic set.

The Coneflower was die cut from varying tones of blue card with some Distress Inks also blended onto each layer to create a variety of blue within each petal. The same with the green leaves – die cut from green card stock, then green Distress Ink blended onto them.

Before gluing them together, I also splattered them with the same gold acrylic ink.

The centre of the coneflower is die cut from a piece of water-colour card stock onto which I had painted the gold acrylic ink – roughly to create some dimension.

The sentiment is a light blue and dark blue layer, slightly off-set.

I added some glass cabochons for further interest.
