Well, I was right....wasn't I. You did love the new release sneak peeks yesterday. Wait until you see what we have for you today. More fabulous images for you to adore!!

My card today is Crissy's gorgeous new release flower. We won't know the official name until the new release hits High Hopes website Sunday April 19th.

I love to do paper tole and when I saw this fabulous flower, that was my very first thought. I embossed the image 6 times with black. I totally painted 1 image for my base. I colored only certain petals of each of the remaining embossed images. Now the fun begins. Starting from the back of the image you have to choose which petals to layer first. I used blobs of silicone for the layering. I had to stamp just the flower center 3 times and emboss them. Same deal for the layering of the center. When both were completely dry I attached the center to the flower. I also added some stickles. It's really hard to see, but I added some glossy accents on the front petals to look like dew drops. The DP is from the paper company.

I added this pic to show you the dimensions on the flower.
I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I hope you like it too!!

Right about the time I think your coloring is as good as it could possibly by, you come up with something like this. Ok, so this is it, the best that it is possible to be. Complete perfection.
