Hidden numbers ...

Back again ...

This time I'm back to florals and the beautiful Uniko Chrysanthemum.

I began with die cutting the flower before stamping and watercolour.  I then die cut the number from the middle of the chrysanthemum - I also die the numbers a further four times so that I could stick and stack them.  I then adhered the flower back into the panel and added the raised numbers.  It is a layout I've used before but not with the inlaid die.

I used:
UNIKO Pure Florals Chrysanthemum Stamps and matching dies
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade.
Versafine Onyx Black
Dienamics Hign Rise number dies.

I'm entering the following challenges:

AAA Cards #64



  1. How to wish someone a happy birthday who is just a little bit anxious about their age! Fab card, love the technique. Cara x

  2. Absolutely classic Elaine. You work wonders with this Uniko bloom and this is another neat, clever and striking use of it. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards. Sarah x

  3. Lovely! I love Chrysanthemums and you have coloured this one perfectly. I also love how you inlaid the flower back into the card panel. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!
