Secret Garden Varigated Petnias

 Did you ever see varigated colore Petunias?  I really love the bold stripes and colors.  I know the Secret Garden Stamps are supposed to coordinate with the dies but I thought who says I have to use the die that matches exactly?  Right?  so I used the daisy flower stamp to stamp a bunch of different colors (here Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point and Sahara Sand and then diecut them out using the small flower die centering it and this is what I got.  I thought it was cute.  I hope you do too.  The sentiment is stamped in white onto black CS and heat embossed using detail white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Verses set from Sale-a-bration.  All the flowers are mounted using dimensionals in various depths.  Mount the whole thing onto Melon Mambo CS base.
I did add Dazzling Details to the center - what else? to add a little sparkle.  I think that should be my middle name.....

You captured the petunias perfectly! I arrived here through an entry on splitcoaststampers forum that touted your August 26-27, 2010 posts, for a darling skiing penguin. I'm on my way there now but thought I'd enjoy your other beautiful work in the process. TFS
