For my first card:
 I Stamped the water lily 3 times & heat embossed with black .  Then "painted" with LuminArte powdered pigments mixed with gum arabic.   I cut out a smaller portion of the flower & shaped with a stylus then popped it up with pop dots that I made myself using Aleene's Tack It Over & Over glue. (it takes several days for the glue dots to set, so I make a whole tray at one time to use at a later date).  Then I cut the center portion from the 3rd flower & popped it on top.   I fussy cut around the side of the lily & pad on the left side so I could tuck the DP behind it.   

For my second card, I stamped & heat embossed with Black EP.  Then I "painted" with LuminArte powdered pigments mixed with gum arabic.
 This has been a very exciting experience for me!  I thank Faith at MFP for letting me join in the fun with these wonderful stamps!
