Here's today's card -
Couture Creations Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Shaded Lilac.
I cut a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge. At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Nuevo Embossing Folder and inked through the die with Shaded Lilac.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Posy Florals 2 Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Purple Lilac and Sunflower from the Summer Fayre Set and Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Shaded Lilac.
White Satin Edged Organza and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.

Good morning Julia,ReplyDelete
A chicken or egg question for you :- Do you decide the size of the card by doing the background first or doing the stamped image first and then going from there?
Any way i think along with Poppies, Irises are one of my favourite flowers. You have coloured the stamp in almost like a real Iris, and it looks lovely. I like the Rye grass stamp you have used in the corners, just being seen from the edge of the die on top of it. All in all a lovely card that anyone would love to receive, thats if you could part with it as it would need to go to someone special that would appreciate the skill put into its construction.
Crafty hugs and love
