This card literally came to me in a dream! I used Butterscotch Adriondack ink to stamp my handcarved roses onto cream cardstock. I used a lot of masking to make a small circle of blooms, a large circle of blooms and one single large bloom.
I used a water brush over the stamping to pull yellow into the petals and a bit of green for the stamped hips on the buds. A warm grey marker was used to create shadows for what would be the under layers when the flowers were stacked. This grey was blended using the watercolor brush.
I used foam tape to separate the layers. Beaded line, silk leaves and plastic grasses (used as stems) were glued in and a bow tied on the stems.
The whole bouquet was mounted on irridescent dark-green cardstock using foam tape. Finally, a tag was mounted with foam tape and a gold peel-off greeting attached.
