Simply Less is More # 164 take 2

Good evening all.

I`m back to share a second card for this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More, this time with a little more effort in it.
I`d started this card for last weeks masking/ stencilling challenge but ran out of time. I say started, what I mean is, I`d inked up the panel and cut out the mask but thats as far as I got. When I came to take a second look I realised that I could use it for this week too.
For this weeks challenge we are to use 3 of something and also to comment on 3 entries that we don`t usually comment on. See what you think;

I inked the panel with Spun Sugar DI and Memento Rose Bud.
I made the mask using some acetate and the Lorelai Leaf die from Poppy Stamps then made some more homemade embossing paste with Polyfilla and Sap Green water colour paint.
While the EP was still wet I sprinkled a tiny bit of Glamour Dust glitter on the leaves.
Once dry I added some punched daisies with flat back pearl centres.
The sentiment is Wplus9 stamped in Memento Black.
I added the panel using foam pads
So... I`ve got 3 colours, pink green and white. 3 flowers, 3 pearl centres and just to be fussy, the branch is in 3 parts.
The leaf isn`t as sharp as I would have liked but I think I chose an awkward shape to emboss with quite a few `loose` parts. That`s my excuse anyway.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
