Hi Bloggers.

We had a great day yesterday. Hopefully, everyone went home buzzing with ideas.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the flower from the Justrite Peonies Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I coloured in using Candied Apple and Lucky Clover Distress Markers, highlighting the shaded areas with the pens and pulling the colour out using a waterbush. I cut it out using the smallest rectangle in the Justrite Stitched A2 Rectangles & Banners Die Set (still waiting for stock, sorry) and I inked through the die with Candied Apple Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I cut the larger rectangle die in the set outof Black Card.

I stamped the peony again and coloured it using the Candied Apple Distress Marker. I cut it out using the corresponding die in the Justrite Peonies and Mason Jar Die Set (again waiting for stock). I shaped it a little and added it to the original image using 3d Foam.

The sentiment is from the Justrite Whisper of Wings Stamp Set, stamped onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9 Nines and inked though the die with Candied Apple Distress Ink. I cut some faux brads out of Black Card using the Stitched A2 Rectangles & Banners Set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Went to Sheffield today, Phill and Leonie took turns to demonstrate in the workshop area. Hello to Elaine and Helen who where at the workshop yesterday and at Phill's today - made me feel not alone in my crafting madness. Lovely card - shows that all do not always need a messy background. (Yes we did one of those yesterday)
