Good morning folks, it's Fliss here today with hopefully a bit of inspiration to encourage you to enter my challenge theme if you haven't yet done so.
I decided to make
a flowery creation with my recently rediscovered Twinkling H20 paints
which I used to paint the flowers although you might not be able to see
the lovely pearly shimmer in the photo.
made the background paper by layer stamping a flourish from an elderly
Impression Obsession clear set also recently discovered - can you tell
I've been having a bit of a clear out lol. I stamped my chosen flourish
with Adirondack Aqua and Pink Sherbet having first inked the card with
Milled Lavender Distress ink.
I stamped the flowers (Crafty
Individuals) with Memories Artprint Brown and painted them with the H20
paints - English Lavender, Northern Lights and Gold Dust. I cut them out
and embossed the reverse with a large embossing ball tool. I stamped
the leaves (also Crafty Individuals) with VersaFine Spanish Moss and cut
I embossed a die cut heart (Papermania) with the
Cuttlebug Victoria folder and then made a little faux button with a
Nestabilities blossom die, embossed with the same folder and pierced
holes with a pokey tool.
I assembled the card with some pretty
polka dot ribbon and added a sentiment (Hobby Art) stamped on a scrap of
card left over from my Monday class demo (a flourish from the same set
over card coloured with pastel pencils - more on this technique soon)
So there you have it and I'm sure like me you're now longing for Spring!
