Autumn Coloured Distress ink card

Hello again I like to try different styles and ideas for cards, so today's cards is different to what I usually do. But I thought it compliments  the stamped image beautifully.
For this card I used a range of stamps I have. There are Tim Holtz stamps
swirl stamps. The main image is called wonderland  by Molly Harrison
The background was created with Tim holtz distress inks
Dried Marigold and Aged mahogany. I also mixed some perfect pearls in gold with some water and put in to spray bottle. Sprayed whole area then added a few drops to the distressed card. Dried the card using my heat gun and then ironed the card to make it flat again as when you add water and heat the card tends to curl a little. Then Istamped background card with all different stamps with distress inks and other ink pads i had to hand used blacks,brown and the aged mahogany.
The image was coloured using copic markers

The owl and the pussy cat sail away. The London line clear stamps. Handmade fabric flowers.

Hi,Well it was last day of summer yesterday.... did we even get a summer. Nights are drawing in time to cosy up in craft room and get creating.
I am still getting my entries ready for the local Agricultural show  (3 weeks left)
but its a slow progress.
So here is the card I have made for one of the classes
it has to be an Olympic inspired card.
So made and easel card so when I put it in show you will be able to see the inside of the card as easy as the outside.
The stamped image was coloured using mainly faber castell polychromo pencils
Pencils where used for the sails and the boat also for the water.
The owl and the pussy cat were coloured using my trusty copic markers.
and for the inside I added a chocolate medal which adds a little extra gift to the card.
The die cut used on the inside and the front of the card is a memory box die.
The sentiment is just typed in PC and then printed onto card.
I tried to keep the card simple.  worked on getting the colouring right
I'm pleased how it turned out.
Sneak peek of what else I have been trying to make.
 Not sure how, or what I am going to do with them yet.
Flowers. I need to make handcrafted flowers for another entry.
So this is what I have come up with.
They were easy to make. But take time  You need to cut all the petals out
I used dress lining fabric. Then you gently heat the edges over a candle and because of the type of fabric used it curls and seals the edges. Then I threaded all the petals on to florist wire and put a few stitches and glue in place to secure the petals. The centre of the flowers were made by sewing beads to a pom-pom of fabric on the end of the florist wire I used to add petals to.
Here is the attempt at making a ribbon rose.
Not sure what to make with them yet . Thought about on top of a gift,
or maybe hair accessories. I don't know what do you think?
any suggestion's
Hoped you enjoyed today's card.
