Having painted the lemon roses on the wooden plaque, I wanted to try something a bit different, so this was an experiment. MDF plate painted with black, then diecut flowers and leaves added as I glazed it so the glaze acted like a glue. Die cuts were made from pale turquoise papermania pearlescent card - the really glisten in the sunlight!
Don't want to part with this one either! :-)
I am thinking that you could use this idea and paint the leaves and flower still leaving the outline, or even use them as a base for paint fusioning.
I am going to attempt something with a snowflake die later! Hope this inspires you to try something different with diecut shapes.
