4. Then I covered the flower with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.
5. Now all it needs is to be heated with my heat gun.
6, There were some parts that didn't completely melt, but I left it that way because it adds extra texture.
7. I fussy cut the flower out.
8. The designer paper isn't study enough for a pin, even with the embossing, so I stamped the flower again on a piece of scrap cardstock. I stamped it 4 times.
9. I fussy cut the flowers out. I cut them a little smaller than I did the designer paper one.
10. Because I didn't want any white showing with the layers, I took a black sharpie marker and went around the petals giving them a margin of black.
11. I layerd all four of the cardstock flowers. I used Aleene's tacky glue to adhere the layers together. While the glue made the cardstock kind of soft, I pinched the edges of the flowers in making the flower curve,
12, This photo shows how curved it is.
13. While the four cardstock layers dried, I took the designer paper flower and I added texture paste with ARTplorations Bold Florals stencil.
14. I centered the stencil flower over the fussy cut flower. I used tape to maks off the edges.
15 Here is how it looked when I took the stencil off.
16. I wanted extra texture, so while the texture paste was still wet, I took a bamboo skewer and I poked at the flower to give it a bumpy texture.
18. I added color to my flower, by watercoloring with crayola markers.
21. I finished the flower pin off with gold acrylic paint on the petals, and I glued gold beads in the center of the pin.
