This image started out as layering weight white cs smooched in color burst of purple and yellow. Added more color with sponging those colors around outer edges. Placed flower silhouette stencil and added gold paste. Once dry ran the piece through embossing machine with new 3D lace folder using homemade aperture mask so center was not embossed in an oval shape. A stamp buddy suggested using cs in several layers to make mask which worked perfectly (thanks Diana I did use 3 layers of 100lb. cs). Highlighted embossing with black ink pad swiped across ridges. Used Silhouette cut sentiments and mounted on white cs base. Added white and black gel pens to highlight.
