I found the bright orange and green paper in my stash and wanted to tone it down so I added a white embossed panel to the left. It still looked too bright so I went outside and picked a couple of cosmos flowers that OH has planted in the front garden
I've laid the petals out on a piece of watercolour paper
covered with a piece of kitchen towel and run it through the Cuttlebug and this is the result
I love how the bright colours have transferred to the paper just like magic. I also tried it with a dahlia which gave a subtle leaf like effect and some lobelia which gave a lovely soft effect.
I've then trimmed it to size and put through the Cuttlebug again with the dragonfly embossing folder to match the cute one in the image. A simple sentiment and my card is finished
