More Decorative Labels Eight

This started with another wax resist paper I made.  The first thing I did for this card was to cut out the center of my patterned paper using the second largest die in the Decorative Labels Eight set. I cut a large piece of the purple glimmer paper using the largest die in the set.  

To make the focal, I used the third die to cut the white card stock piece.  While the die was still in place, I stamped the flowers - using a stamp from the Artful Collection from HOTP.  I stamped the sentiment, then added color with my water brush and the purple ink. I colored most deeply right around the inside edge of the die, then using more water I added a light bit of color in the area inside the die.  Next I sprayed with some silver Smooch Spritz before removing the die to reveal the white decorative edge.  

To put the card together, I simply layered the pieces I'd gathered.  First the outer edge of the patterned paper, then the purple glimmer, then the inside cut piece of the patterned paper.  Finally, I added the focal with foam tape.
