floral wreath...

  • wild rose studio stamp 'everyday greetings'
  • cardio stamps (floral from various sets)
  • SU! 'potpourri' stamp with matching punch
  • stickles 'frosted lace'
  • memento ink pads
I started with a circle drawn lightly in pencil. I then added floral and foliage stamps to cover the outline using various coloured inks, inspired by the colour Q challenge. I then inked some cardstock, cut it into a banner shape and stamped it with my sentiment. Next was the butterfly, which I coloured, stamped and punched out. I glued the pieces onto my card blank following the paper players sketch and finished with glittered accents around the edge of the matt and the centres of the flowers.

  1. VERY pretty! Lovely way to use the colors as well as the sketch! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week!

  2. Beautiful stamping for the looks so pretty. I never seem to use that butterfly in the Pot Pourri set for some reason, but always love seeing it on other people's cards. I really must ink it up! Thanks for playing along at Colour Q!
