Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Stamp 3 of each of the large coneflowers, colour the flowers using copics and the stems/leaves using green ink and die cut the flowers. Use the yellow glitter pen to colour the centre of the blossoms. Colour the back of the diecuts and gently shape. Glue along the centre of one of the diecuts and layer a 2nd diecut on top to give a stronger flower. Cut a few single petals and decoupage these to the front of the flower. Make as many as required to fill your ceramic mug.
Stamp 2 each of the smaller "filler" flowers and colour using copics and inks. Diecut and shape.
Use hot glue to fix the flowers and filler flowers into position. Add a small amount of wet glue to the small flowers and sprinkle with the glitter - tap off excess
Using the kuretake pinks colour piece of white card, allow it to dry and stamp the sentiment in black ink and add clear embossing powder, remove the excess and heat to set. Die cut the tag. Tie a bow with the yarn and tuck the tag under the leaves at the front -secure in place using foam pads.
