Sheena's Flower Power stamp set

 Hi folks!  Hope you are all fine and dandy.  Just a quicky today and it's full steam ahead prepping for our twins, Ben & Isabelle's 8th birthday party this Sunday.  It's a seaside theme, as you can imagine there is still tonnes to do.   
 Hope you were able to catch some of Sheena's fabulous show recently on Create and Craft.  You may have  caught a glimpse of this sample that I made.  I love using acetate on my projects and stamped the sentiment (from the Only Words stamp set) in the middle of a large piece using white chalkies.  I used flitter glue to stamp the leafy swirls and covered it with green glitter.
I cut the circle frame from Centura pearl card on my Cricut.  I cut 2 of these and sandwiched the acetate in between cutting away the excess around the edge. I then punched a couple of holes near the top and tied on the ribbon for hanging.  I stamped the flowers, from Sheena's fantastic Flower Power stamp set, and painted them with mica paints ( I have a mixture of H2O's and Cosmic Shimmer).  For the centre of the flowers I squeezed a huge blob of dimensional glue gel and tipped on some pearly seed beads.  I also sprinkled on some crystal glitter to the centre of the flowers to fill in any gaps and add that extra sparkle.  I finished off the piece with a few pink crystal gems around the leafy swirls. 
Those of you interested in my studies...... I got 100% for my latest Biology assignment.  Whoop Whoop!
Ciao for now!
