When I create Susan's flowers, I usually create a lot at one time and work in an assembly line to complete them. I love purple, and had a lot of purple flowers and decided to group them in one arrangement. The Garden Notes die sets used for the flowers in this arrangement include: Buddleia (Butterfly Bush), Brunnera, Columbine, Spider Mum, Echinacea, and Beauty Berry Bush die sets. Nuvo Bottle Green Crystal Drops were used on the top of the Buddleia and Nuvo Plum Pudding Crystal Drops used on the Beauty Berry Bush.
For this card I worked with the Nuvo Misted Mauve Expanding Mousse to create a small background.
The Tonic Studio Petal Pattern Stencil was taped down on a piece of white card stock. The Nuvo Misted Mauve Expanding Mousse was spread over the stencil. The extra mousse was scraped off and put back in the jar. The stencil was carefully taken off and placed in water right away to be cleaned. Since this is expanding mousse, it can be heated with a heat tool and the appearance changes. It raises up and almost appeared to have the appearance of felt. It was very soft to the touch. So fun to work with!
Once the Expanding Mousse was cooled off, I used one of the Tonic Eastern Oyster Layering Dies to die cut a decorative piece. For a backing to this piece with the mousse, the die, one size larger was used for a solid lavender background. These layers were attached to each other using Tonic Dimensional Pads.
