I love the big shape for the Floating Shape Technique. All three of the big ones that I created are in neutral colors. I like the neutral color, and the flower sure stands out lovely. I have some great tips in the video for large shapes using grid paper. 

The colors for the strips are Basic Bray, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla, Gray Granite, and Pebbled Path.

I bet many will ask me what dies set this big 3-½ circle is from. Well, it is from the Circle Collection from years ago. So if you have large shapes dies, dust them off and give it a try. They are great for this technique. 
The flowers are all with the Fresh Freesia I embossed in the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. The texture of the embossing looks excellent on the punch-out flowers.
