Outlines - Posies

Good Monday morning!  Hope you enjoyed your weekend!  Today's challenge for the Outlines design team is Pick a Posy.  We are to use at least one of the flowers from the Posy Mix and Match series, which is pretty extensive!  I used the Round Posy Sm (E-1040)and Round Posy Md (E-1039) images, which I colored with Copic markers and then painted over the center and edges with some Smooch Top Coat.  I molded the petals and adhered the posies using silicone glue to give them some height. 

The background stamp I used is called Izzy Background (J-988) and it matched my Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue paper and scalloped border strip perfectly!  I stamped it using Adirondack Eggplant ink and then painted over it with the Smooch Top Coat, too.  I added the Busy Bee Sm. image (A-83) in the upper right corner, also using the silicone glue.  Finally, I added some Swarovski Crystals (size 12), using Glossy Accents and Picksey Pick Ups - they make it SO easy to add the crystals!  If you haven't tried them, you should check them out.

Please be sure to check out the Posy cards the rest of the design team made:
