I started with a distress oxide background and stamped the stems and leaves on to it. I used distress oxides and inks to add further colour to the leaves and stems. Next I used brushos and created a red/orange background and stamped on the flower heads and then fussy cut them. I then coloured the centres in brown and added the heads to the card..
I also added the sentiment from the stamp set and some Chocolate Baroque bees...
Here's a proper close up of the flowers...love these flowers!!!
