Grateful - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #100

I've been playing with some of the new products in the Spring catalogue, and today it was the Crepe paper.  For the challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here  I dyed the crepe paper and made it into a flower.
Here is the card:                                             



Stamp: Pursuit of Happiness
Inks: Island Indigo, Reinkers (Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight)
Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Sycamore Street DSP, Summer Starfruit, White Crepe Paper, Gumball Green
Accessories: Blossom Petal Punch, Fancy Fan Folder, 2 1/2" circle punch, Antique Brad, 1/4" white stitched grosgrain ribbon, gold smooch, Dazzling details

Here's how I made the flower:
  1. A sheet of white crepe paper was spritzed with 2 colors of reinkers which had been diluted in 2 spritzers filled with tap water (Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight) until the entire surface was covered.
  2. The wet colored paper was dried using an embossing gun
  3. The dried colored paper was folded in half and punched with the blossom petal punch
  4. Each blossom petal's edges were sponged with Island Indigo ink and then spritzed with gold smooch.  The petals curled up on their own.
  5. When dry, the petals were stacked alternating petals and an antique brad was inserted in the center
  6. Dazzling details was applied to the petal edges and allowed to dry.
