Berry Burst cardstock and ink – Stampin Up!, Old Olive ink – Stampin Up!.  Black Stazon ink, Gala Glitz - mauve. Kuretake water colour pens (no. 025 pink, no.043 olive green, no. 050 yellow). White stamping card. Liquid mercury nuvo drops. Spray and sparkle – Crafters Companion. Foam pads. Glue gun

Make the Coneflowers:- Stamp each flower twice onto white card, using black stazon ink and colour with Kuretake water colour pens. When dry, diecut the flowers and ink the edges with Berry Burst and Olive Olive inks, shape the die cuts using the flower shaping tools. Cut the flower heads off the second stamped image, shape, then glue the head of the flower to the complete flower diecut to give a decoupage effect. Add nuvo drops to the head of the flower and sprinkle with gala glitz, allow to dry and spray lightly with spray and sparkle.

Score a piece of 11” x 6.5” Berry Burst card at 5.5” and fold in half to create a  5.5” x 6.5” card base

Select the paper from the pad and cut to 5” x 6”, ink around the edges in Berry Burst ink and adhere to the card base

Cut a 3” x 6” piece of vellum and die cut the fleur border to one side of the vellum. Lightly ink the border with Old Olive ink and the top and bottom edges with Berry Burst. Adhere to the base card using double sided tape along the longest straight edge of the vellum

Position the flowers onto the card using a glue gun using some of the off cut leafs amongst the flowers
