I love Paperartsy dies and use them loads to make super flowers for decorations for boxes, present tags, Christmas and all sorts. I recently completed a secret project for my niece, but I cant show the results till after the 19 September. But I used the same dies as in the pics below, but used double sided cardstock, ribbons and pearls.
So for these flowers I followed Leandas's instructions on the Blog mixing their normal paints and metallic ones ,and painted on to heavy stamping card, great results. I stamped and embossed with PA stamps and cut out I have yet to master lining up the stamps and dies, I am afraid I find it quicker to cut out.
