In the garden of life

Hi Bloggers.

A dinky little card today -

For the background, I stamped the Stitched Frame Background onto Coconut White Card using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Hope & Love Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I coloured it using Milled Lavender and Crushed Olive Distress Markers with a Tim Holtz Water Brush. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 8 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I cut a couple of leaves out of a backing paper from my stash using Sue's Curled Vines Die Set and made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Phill Martin has shows on Create & Craft today at 9am and 3pm with some fab new Creative Expressions Stamps and some of his gorgeous Cosmic Shimmer products.

Thanks for stopping by.
