Bloomin' Blue!

I've been making jewellery with WOW embossing powder and some of their fabulous moulds.....and I didn't want to waste the 'experiment' that I created first! I've turned it into a little home decor piece.....
The blue glittery rose is made from WOW Melt It powder and blue glitter embossing powder. Really easy, just melt the powders and pour into the mould! I discovered the trick to getting a glittery finish like this....
on the surface of the rose is to add a little glitter EP to the mould before adding the rest of the molten powder. The heat from the molten powder melts the glitter EP just enough to make it stick, but not so much that it is incorporated into the whole mixture. It won't rub off the rose!
I glued the rose to some strands of wire, then pushed the wire into a hole I had drilled in a driftwood disc....
The disc was painted white, and I added some cut up letters to form the word first!
The leaves are made by my much used technique of bending wire into shape, then adding Glossy Accents into the shape created by the wire...
As you can see, I added a little text stamped paper behind the leaf shape, and I also added a teeny bit of alcohol ink to colour the Glossy Accents blue!
It's very handy that this week 'Blue' is the theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, so I'm linking up my blue flower creation!
Have a great day!
