The Appearance of Cameos

Moxie Fab World has a challenge going on:  The Appearance of Cameos found here
Also, the JUGS Wild Card Challenge #69 this week is to create a 3-D flower.

I chose to use a floral image for my cameo.  The image was stamped with Versamark on GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cs then heat embossed with White Pearls ep to give it the dimention that a cameo has.  After the embossed image cooled, I sponged light purple chalk ink over the entire piece while still in the Nesties die.  Layered this onto a dark purple circle then onto the Gina K Designs Lovely Labels 2 by Nina Brackett which was stamped in Memento Grape Jelly on Ivory cs.  The 3-D flower was made by punching 6 scalloped circles out of light weight ivory cs, wrinkling them all up by wadding into a ball, flattening them back out then placed on top of each other and anchored with a brad that you can't see.  Then took the light purple chalk ink and rubbed it against the edges of the petals.  Added the Martha Stewart leafy branch punches and layered it all onto the purple flourishy dp from a chipboard pack that I bought a long time ago and then onto the dark purple base.

Thanks for visiting :)
