Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers today is Flower Embellishments. Whilst we are happy to see floral images on your creations, these alone do not count. You need to add either pre-made, home made or diecut flowers to your project to qualify.
I started with making my own card blank from Centura Pearl Snow White card using a Go Kreate die. I also cut a smaller mat which I embossed.
The flowers themselves are stamped with Sheena Douglass’ Anenome stamps on a dotty patterned pearlised paper and then coloured with distress stains, Peacock Feathers for the Turquoise One. Picked Raspberry for the Pink One and Dusty Concord the lilac one. Have to say can’t wait to get my hands on Wilted Violet when it finally gets dispatched. I shaped them and having stuck them together added a mixture of tiny beads and Stampendous glitters. The tiny beads are in fact nail art from Poundland. I bought every pack they had in the shop!
The sentiment was printed from my pc with the addition of a Penny Black diecut word.
The mat between the embossed layer and the card back was cut from the same paper I had stamped onto and coloured with a more watered down version of Peacock Feathers to tone in. As was the ‘friends’ diecut.
