Creative Inspirations Paint~ Inspired By: Flowers Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!!
It is Sunday and time for another challenge over at
This weeks challenge is...
Inspired by:Flowers!
We want to see all your projects using flowers
and here is what I made

I have been going back and forth with doing CAS cards 
and I always say this but
I LOVE creating CAS cards :)

Here is a close-up of this beautiful flower from
My Creative Time's newest release
~Bloom Where You are Planted~
I tried something new with this card and
have to say I really like the results
~Deliquesce Clear Embossing Powder~
 for the flower
then I colored it in using my copics
 I took my CIP in 
~Garnet and Evergreen~ 
and painted the flower for a shimmery look
The paint and the copics for the most part resisted the embossing so you see a kinda clear shadow around the rose.
I did use my colorless blender to pull some of the color from the embossed part but wanted to leave a little...
I think it gives the image a watercolor look as well

Supplies Used:
Cardstock~ PTI 
True Black, Pure Poppy and Select White
Paints~ Creative Inspirations Paint
Garnet and Evergreen CIP
Deliquesce Clear Embossing Powder
Sentiment~ My Creative Time
~Bloom Where you are Planted~
~Floral Sentiments~
Color Medium ~ Copics
