Another Floral Card!

Hello!  Thank you for visiting me - I am so grateful!  I made this card a while ago - it was for my wonderful Sister, Lilian's birthday.



The stamp is Bejeweled by Penny Black and I love it!  I used watercolour card for this along with my Misti stamping platform.  I inked the stamp up with a combination of Distress Markers and Distress Inks then lightly spritzed the stamp and closed the door of the Misti.  I was then able to repeat the process until I was happy with result.  I inked a piece of scrap card with the same colours and cut the three little butterflies out using dies that came free with a magazine.  The sentiment is stamped using black Versafine with stamps from MFT Label Maker Sentiments.  I splattered the background lightly with some of the watered down inks then when dry attached to a green mat then a white card base.  The little black stones were used to coordinate with the sentiment strips.  I have made two more similar cards at the same time but using different colours as I just adore this stamp so much!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - Flower Power.
That's Crafty - Forever Floral.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.

Fab Challenges!

Thank you again for visiting!  Take care - Christine xxx

This is so lovely, Chris! I wish I had seen this before I bought a similar stamp from another company. I love PB's sketchy stamps and somehow missed this one; just perfect for fall, but versatile enough for any season! I'm sure Lilian will cherish this!! Hugs, Darnell

The flower looks hand-painted - the addition of the black strips brings it bang up to date.
