Spring is trying its best to appear in the UK, so I'm encouraging it by making this spring flower card. The inspiration has come from the following challenges:
|Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger
|MUSE Challenge #12
So here's the full version of my card, which I'm also entering into Simon Says April Showers And/Or Flowers, and One Layer Wednesday, hosted this week by Heather, where the challenge is to use a tall/thin card. Does it still count if it's lying down, Heather?
I white-embossed the flower stamp (3868J Portraits by Penny Black) three times, then masked all the flowers (took forever!) while I stamped the leaf from Paper Smooches Reflections using Versafine Smoky Grey in the gaps. Then I removed the masks and coloured the flowers with a very wet chinese water brush loaded with a combination of Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick distress inks. Once that dried I added a bit of Scattered Straw distress ink to the flower centres. The flower directly above "happy" didn't stamp cleanly, but fortunately it left a nice little niche for the sentiment (Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler) to fit into.
Blogger is throwing a wobbler and won't let me link the image addresses, so I've had to download them to my computer. Anyone else having the same problems?
