Floral Silhouette

I'm showcasing the Floral Silhouette stamp set once again from Creative Expressions.
I've moved away from colour this time around and gone for a more monochromatic look.
If you look closely you will see that the backing paper is actually white card covered with Cosmic Shimmer Gunmetal Polished Glitter, this glitter is so fine and smooth to the touch, its fabulous.
The Floral Silhouette has been stamped with black Archival Ink and then stamped with pumice stone Distresss Ink to give a shadow effect. I have also added some black mesh for added texture along with a dimensional butterfly also from the same stamp set, adding a pen nib for added dimension.
GROW has been added using Alpha Parts again adding further dimension and interest.
The finishing touches are two metal flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
