Colour INKspiration Challenge #140 - Rustic Daisy Flowers

Hello and welcome back

This week's Colour INKspiration challenge colours are So Saffron, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Early Espresso:

I had this Fence card leftover from a tutoriaI I made recently (see original post here with tutorial) and decided it would suit the design I had in mind perfectly.

I pulled out my Medium Daisy Punch and assembled three flowers, two in Petal Pink and one So Saffron. To make these flowers, I punched three of each colour (six of the Petal Pink) then spritzed them with water, scrunched them up, unfolded them and set them aside to dry. Once dry, I assembled three layers to make one flower.

The leaves were punched using the Bough Punch in Soft Sea Foam and Basic White, while using Gold Foil for the smaller floral stem from the punch. 

I needed to add Early Espresso into the design and used the branch twig from Harvest Dies. The sentiment is white heat embossed on Early Espresso and attached onto the Basic White border die from Painted Labels Dies and then mounted.

All of these elements are attached to the largest stitched circle from Stylish Shapes Dies, one Basic White and one die-cut from some retired Soft Sea Foam DSP and attached to the card base with a couple of teeny tiny flowers from the Sending Smiles Dies. To complete the card, I popped some Gilded Gems to the flower centres.

Here are some more pics, followed by a product list:
