Memory Box week: Gio's turn

Cards from Gio, now that's something we don't often see. And it's such a shame as I think her cards are really lovely. Particularly love the acetate one (which she pictured beautifully and that's not an easy task). 
Here's a few more details on the cards.... 

Card one

I cut a piece of acetate to size. I drew and cut out a circle from the card. I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of gessoed paper and I glued it to the card. I stamped two corners of the acetate using Jet Black StazOn and a Kanban plate: Birds of paradise-peacock. I cut the flower from a gessoed book page and I glued the stems to the centre of the card.

Card two

I cut a piece of red cardstock to size. I put some Fresco Finish paint Snowflake on a toothbrush and I sprayed the paint on the cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using Jet Black StazOn and Butterfly Kisses stamp: Beauty collage. I cut the flowers from a gessoed book page, glued one on my card, then I cut the stem from the other flowers and glued them on top of the first one. I then added a red rhinestone to the flower centre. I also added a black chain with some beads to the side of a card.

Card three

I cut a piece of black cardstock to size. I stamped the sentiment using Fresco Finish paint Snowflake and Butterfly Kisses stamp: Beauty collage.  I cut the poppies from a gessoed book page. I coloured the flowers with Barn Door and Shabby Shutters Distress inks using the Zig waterbrush Detail. I glued the poppies to the card. I stamped the swirl using Barn DoorDistress ink and IO Cover a card stamp: Swirls then I covered the area with Dreamweaver metallic F/X: Moonstone with a paintbrush. 

And the material Gio used:
