(7) Punch three different small flower shapes from thin copper metal.
(8) Use Felt Applicator to apply Terra Cotta Alcohol Ink and Gold Metallic Mixative to the punched copper shapes. Allow the alcohol inks to dry thoroughly and then glue one shape to the center of each silk flower using a small dab of Glossy Accents.
(9) Add a self-adhesive rhinestone to each flower center.
(10) Use Glossy Accents to attach the large flower to the bottom left corner of the canvas and place the remaining flowers to the top and side using foam tape.
