Ok, so I pretty much made everything by hand on this and tried to keep it light with a breezy feeling. I started with a blue, swirley and glittery paper (which doesn't really translate well in this photo) and then cut the bottom of it with a slight wave design. I glued it to the top of plain white 12x12 card stock. I then took one of my new favorite stamps by Donna Salazar and stamped it along the bottom of the white page. Then I remembered a great idea posted by Wendy on sb.com. She made this braid circle and wove flowers into it. Well, I didn't weave the flowers in or make a circle, but I did use 3 different colors of ribbon and made a braid. Thanks for the idea Wendy!! I attached it to the blue paper and followed the wave pattern.
Then I made the roses using plain white copy paper and a flower punch. I use Stormy Sky Distress Re-inker and a Mini-Mister. I sprayed the paper flowers lightly, let them dry then sprayed them again. If you spray them too much they become saturated and loose their shape. It is best to do a few light coats. Then when this was dry I added copper Perfect Pearls to a mini-mister with water and lightly sprayed the flowers again. When this was dry I took some Purple Distress Ink and then lightly went over the flowers again. Kind of my take on the Prima Alchemy Flowers. Here is a close up:
