Evening lovely Crafters. I hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday Monday despite the weather. It was great crafting weather wasn't it. I've managed to catch up on a few things that needed to be done so am a happy bunny tonight.
May and June are extremely busy for Birthdays and Special Days for me and I'm on a bit of a production line at the minute. I made this card for two ladies who have birthdays days apart but live at the opposite ends of the country so I knew there was no risk of them seeing each others.
The flower is a Papermania build a rose stamp which I've had for ages and not used. I painted it with Cosmic Shimmer watercolours paint and was pleased with the finished result although it was bit time consuming cutting out all the separate petals to build it up.
The background stamping is using a Colour My World background stamp. The top and bottom panels were stamped in Bundled Sage Distress Ink, my new favourite colour and the middle one is clear embossed and the ink rubbed over it to create a negative effect. I coloured the mat layer with a grey promarker and the greeting was stamped onto an inked Nestie that has been cut in half and finished it off with perfect pearls.
I'd like to enter it into the Dream Valley challenge this time which is to Stamp Something, no digi images allowed.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting.
