This was flat:
First, I inked the leaves using distress ink, but you can use any chalk ink as well. Note that I only inked the edges so that I would not see the paper's white core. I did not want to change the color of the leaves. But you may.
Next I pierced tiny holes every 1/8" to add stitching.
Finally I adhered the leaves to the base using dimensional foam and "played/handled" with them or lifted the sides and/or edges with my fingers.
Below you see me using the "ball" of the inking tool's handle. This process worked best then using the special tool. I just went over the center of the flower in a circular motion adding light pressure.
I don't have a picture but I finished the purple flowers by adding a "bling" to the center of each flower.
First I inked them using distress ink. I used a circular motion starting from the mat "into" the flowers. This process helps to not leave visible ink marks. You can see how the color changed by looking at the flower on the bottom right of this picture.
I used a little bit of distress ink.
I finished them all by adding them to the card using yet more dimensional foam.
And I ended up making them into a set and creating a box to fit them all in and give them as a gift.
