fresh flowers ...

stamps: secret garden, peaceful petals, itty bitty banners from stampin up!
inks: memento (tuxedo black) ink pads, tim holtz (squeezed lemonade) ink pads, promarkers
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock plus 5x5" card blank
dies: bitty banners framelits from stampin up! and sizzix using big shot to cut

I cut a mat to fit the card. I stamped the flowers, using masks to stop the image doubling on the overlapped areas. I then coloured the image using promarkers. the card was inked with tim holtz distress to highlight the yellow in the flowers. the sentiment was stamped and the banner die cut and added to the card using foam pads for dimension. I think the bright colour scheme and clean design work perfectly for a spring time birthday !!

  2. Oooh, pretty floral CAS card, Stacey! Fab colouring of those peony style flowers - I must get round to doing some like these, there's nothing nicer than an afternoon colouring!
