More Simply Pressed Clay roses

Did you know that if you add Crystal Effect on your dried clay flowers, they become really shiny and they will look like they are made of ceramic or plastic! (but without the weight!) For this card, I made the flowers with white Simply Pressed Clay and colored them after with markers. (Use the blender pen to acheive some nuances in color.)  Then I added a layer of Crystal Effect and let them dry.  To make the leaves, I used the Elegant Butterfly punch and cut off the larger wings. I also used the Bitty Butterfly punch for the small leaves. (See picture below for the “trick” how to cut them.)
