Pick A Petal Like you've never seen it before

I really have been looking for new ways to use my current stamp sets, and I have heard so many times that people don't know what to do with the pick a petal set I had this vision in my mind to use the stamp as a template to create a multi media flower. My idea was to make a pink and white fabric and paper bloom. That idea morphed into a black and kiwi flower today......{smile}At our creative corner the challenge is to make something with your favorite color to stamp with. I love many colors especially pink...but right now at this very moment kiwi kiss is the love of my life LOL! I will miss it when the new catalog arrives...ahh but a new color will come along. We stampers are fickle!
I love the acetate petals, and plan to make one completely out of window sheets. I snipped a skinny strip of kiwi to create a stem, and placed 3 little square buttons to balance out the layout.
The center of my bloom is coated with crystal effects and black sequins with a tiny pom pom in the middle for even more texture. I'm excited to try more new things with this seasoned set!
