Altenew-Flower Challenge #10 - July

Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today I'm sharing a card for entry into the current flower challenge #10, which opens monthly. And the theme for July challenge is "Embossing heat or dry".
Click the image below to link to the challenge post.

So I made a flower card using heat embossing.
The stamp I used here is "Enchanted Iris" from Altenew.

For the background, I cut a white card stock into 4x5.25 inch size, then blended it lightly using distress oxide Broken China, then added some splatters of water, distress spray (broken china), and heidi swapp gold spray, then let them dry.

I stamped the flowers and leaves on a watercolor paper, heat embossed them with gold embossing powder, colored them with zig clean real brush markers. Main colors I used are violet, bright yellow, Deep geeen and light green.

 Then I cut them using coordinating dies and then glued them on the background panel, and rounded a string. I stamped sentiments and put some crystal sequins here and there.

Then I foam mounted the panel onto a navy card base made with navy card stock paper from altenew.

Thanks for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it.
