Flowers on Shadow box card lid - SUO Challenges #216

Anyone who knows me know that I love flowers, and next to growing plants under lights, or  nurturing flowers in my garden, making paper flowers is the next thing.

I am submitting the flowers from this project to the "paper" challenge at SUO challenges

In class this week, participants made a shadow box card, complete with flower embellishments.  Check the post here

Because this is a 3D item I made a box to put the card in (the participants did not make this box).

The lid of the box, like the card itself have hand made flowers embellishments on the.

Below is a picture of the Shadow box card:

In the lower left corner are two flowers made using the Pop of Petals stamp set and the coordinating 4 Petal punch. The 3rd flower was made using the flower framelit from the 

Each flower was made by stampin two flowers with Black Memento ink, then coloured with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape ink with Mango Melody in the center.  The leaves, also from the Pop of Petals stamp set,  were coloured with Old Olive and Mossy Meadow inks using daubers.

After spritzing, drying, and shaping each flower, the two were adhered together offsetting the petals. The leaves were fussy cut and, after receiving the same treatment, were added to the back of each flower.  3D lacquer was applied to each flower to help them retain their shape and protect from handling.  While the lacquer was wet some Dazzling Diamonds was sprinkled over them.

I made the rose by die cutting 5 of the flower die from the Seasonal Layers framelits.  Again, after colouring each flower, spritzing and drying, each was shaped, with each flower shaped progressively 'tighter', with the 5th curled up the tightest (actually rolled in between my fingers).  The flowers are then adhered together  from less to most shaped, offsetting the petals.
