I really wanted to play up the blacks in this paper and I knew I had this big gray Prima flower in my stash so I used that and then went about making all the other flowers using black cardstock and a kind of pinky/peach color cardstock. I make my large flowers following Gabrielle Pollacco's water distressed flower tutorial that you can find on her blog here: Water Distressed Flowers After I made the large flowers I decided to paint some glossy accents on the petals and then dipped them in some diamond dust. I love the way they turned out, just so much sparkle to them! Here's a closeup of the flowers.
I made quite a few of my little tiny rosebuds to place in between the big flowers and also used them for the bottom of the black flourish. Don't you just love this black flourish, it's from Recollections and I just thought it made this layout! I used some foam pop dots to pop up the title which I cut from another piece of Websters paper. Here's a closeup of the small rosebuds.
