I had fun playing in the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration site was Creative Wall Covering.  I was inspired by Reflecting Bouquet in the picture below.

Here is what I came up with.

I punched out several white flowers and formed the petals using needle nose pliers.

I color washed the flowers with a light mixture of water and reinker.  While the flowers were still very wet I brushed a tiny dots of full reinker into the flower centers, quickly washed the brush and lightly moved the reinker around the center and up the lower part of the petals.

I heat dried the flower and then formed the center of the flower using a stylus on a mat.

I really like how the washed flowers look against the all white.  I think the little white pearls are the perfect finish for them.  If you would like to see a few photos on how I accomplished the wash on the flowers check out my Color Wash Flower tutorial.

Have a wonderful weekend.
