A Work in Progress

More Green Tara lovelies with Kaisercraft paper  & embellishment....I like the colour of these petals but wanted them a bit darker, so wiped versamark ink over them and embossed them with clear embossing powder that had sparkle in it. That gave them a lovely gloss and a slightly darker colour which set off the pink pearl stamens. I combined them with the large green leaves to tone down all the pink and cream and folder over the 10cm petal to make a bloom and added the silk and Swarovski crystal flowers and the satin rosette to make a nice little cluster.
