The Heart Desires Challenge 8

Today is the start of Challenge #8 at The Heart Desires
So much fun inspiration to choose from- here's my take:

I've used the beautiful Concord & 9th Wildflower set along with turquoise Brusho after being inspired by the lower left image. I heat embossed the flowers with white powder and then added the brushos. Such a pretty, if somewhat unpredictable, effect. After it was dry I flicked some yellow acrylic paint as well as adding dots of it to the flower centers to bring in more of the challenge colors. I cut the focal panel with a Gina Marie scalloped stitched rectangle die, then added to a navy panel.
Here's the inspiration- you've got all month to play and so many elements to be inspired by!! Hope that you will join us!
