Just Add Ink #94, Paper Crafting Journey #23 & The Play Date Cafe #108 - Fabulous Florets

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge, Paper Crafting Journey #23 - Embossing and The Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge this week.  The colours are rich and dramatic.  I used Copper embossing powder for the flowers and leaves and then softened the focal point by using metallic paper, spritzing with water and colouring with re-inkers.  The colours blend together nicely and dry with a sheen and softness.
