Dimensional Flowers

Today the Serendipity DT is showing off projects suitable for Mother's Day with Dimensional Flowers. Check out what all the ladies created... 
Amy -  Kathie - Miriam - Jeanne - Sue
 I thought I would share my process today with this card. Instead of stamping and cutting out multiple flowers to add dimension, I did something a little different. 
 Here is the image... aren't these Coneflowers beautiful! I used the out of the box technique and Spellbinder's Reverse Wonky Rectangles to frame the image. You can see the Copic marker I used to color the flowers.
 I used a craft knife to cut out the petals of the flowers, leaving the center of the flowers intact. You can see above how I cut them. I used a foam pad and silver ball stylus to press against each petal curling them slightly, adding dimension.
 Next, I used Dimensional Silicone on the back of each cut out petal. I added glue to the flat parts of the panel and then glued it down... the petals stay popped up with the aid of the silicone.
 You can see how the petals stay popped up in the above picture. 
 I colored some seam binding with Copic Y26 and made a bow with it, adding some piercing around the edges. the flower panel is popped up with foam tape. All of my straight line layers were made with Perfect Layers Rulers
