Muse 184 - Happy Birthday

-colours
-layout
-black sentiment

I stamped the flower in versamark. For the centres and leaves, I used my MISTI to stamp once in colour then once again in versamark. Then I embossed the whole thing with clear embossing powder before sponging with distress inks.

Your reverse inking of the inspiration piece is genius. The sponging around the flower looks amazing. And I love the circular panel and sequins.
