Floral Alphabet: Crazy for You Cornflower

When I saw the Groovi version of the Floral Alphabet designed by Barbara Gray I couldn't wait until it was made into stamps.  I was lucky enough to get a couple of them to play with.  Now I just need the rest of the set!  Don't forget you can see plenty of ideas and demonstrations at 9am, 1pm and 5pm today as well as getting the One Day Special price on Hochanda until 6pm (if it lasts).
Cut a piece of stencil card to 6” x 6”. Lay the fourth largest nested oval picot die so it is central and run through a die cutting machine.
Stamp the Floral C (cornflower) in the centre of the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank in Picket Fence Distress ink, set aside to dry.
Stamp the flower section of the floral C into the top and bottom left and right hand sides of the oval frame in Versamark ink and heat emboss in extra fine gold powder.
When the Picket Fence ink is dry colour the flowers and foliage using Sakura moonlight gelly roll pens and the letter C in a gold metallic pen. Be careful not to obscure the line art.
Add the oval fame to the front of the card ensuring it is even.
To finish, remove the c from the word sticker ‘Crazy for you’ and add it next to the floral letter.
