To start, I grabbed everything GOLD that I owned….which turned out to be quite a lot….
The hydrangea petals are punched with more Martha punches. This time I used white card stock gilded with sheets of imitation gold leaf. The sheets give it a smooth finish. I also punched petals from a piece of Heidi Swapp's Mistable's paper that I had colored with Distress Inks. Originally, I used only the gold petals but it was OVERWHELMING to say the least and needed the variation of the more subdued paper. Each gold petal received a pearl center while each Mistable petal received a pretty pale, pale pink flat-back rhinestone.
This is the finished project. I will let her decide whether to punch holes or frame the piece.
I hope she likes it!
