More Funky Flowers

It's perfect weather for crafting here, damp, breezy and cool. I've spent the morning making stuffed felt birds at school as Christmas decorations and now it's back to the paper!

I've managed another card with the Funky Flowers stamps. This one was coloured with watercolour pencils and then stickles added for the bling factor. Dusty Concord distress ink was wiped around the edge and used to make the matting paper. I also used silver mirri board for matting.

I had a go at the background that Jill demonstrated recently, although I didn't have the patience to make masks, but I think it worked ok. The ink was brushed into the flowers with a water brush.

The greeting is from Crafty Individuals.

Short and sweet I'm afraid today. I've got that many ideas flying around my head at the minute that I must get back to the crafting table, well after Neighbours anyway, yes, I know I'm sad!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far.

Hi Lisa,
The two cards you have made with this stamp set are gorgeous. I always like to see your cards and I can imagine how enjoyable they are to make.

Wonderful card, Lisa! I too am an Aussie soap fan! Sounds like you have had a very busy day. Hope you get some good crafting done x

Kathy said...

hmmmm so you had a good nosey at my desk today, but I don't get to do the same with yours - now that's just not fair Lisa!
As for the click for a closer look - don't you feel hard-done-by when you can't clock on those desk pics? Or is that just me? lol
Today I've been wondering whether it's possible to get B Blitz as a Gameboy game - then I could take it wherever I go...

Kathy said...

ohhhh how rude I am! I completely forgot to say how lovely your flowers are - especially love the orangey ones in the post below.

Hi Lisa,

It has been a while since I've had the time to check out other people's blogs and have just stopped by yours and seen these lovely cards that you have made using my stamp sheet. I think they look beautiful as to do the orange flowers in the previous post.

Thanks so much for using my stamps!!
