Throw Back Thursday Speckled Bloom Card

I'm joining in on Bibiana's Throw back Thursday today and wanted to share a card made many moons ago. You can see the Original post found here for more details and supplies used.   I have a step by step tutorial on how I made the flower...
One of my favorite Hero Arts stamps and added the distress inks direct to paper ...
Cut out all the flower parts :)

Used white acrylic paint and flicked the paint on the flower
and added some texture using glossy enamels (I think a poster paint pen or gems would work good too :)

Also shaped the flower by hand for more dimension and cut up into the petals to better shape the flower.
Thanks for joining me for TBT, hope this tutorial was helpful !! :)
