With All My Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Sorry, it's not the best photo in the world!

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Climbing Vines Embossing Folder.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Sweet Sunflowers Stamps to Die For onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed using CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in using CS Pixie Powders - I used Pale Olive, Straw Yellow and Burnt Orange. I tapped a little of each into separate wells in a palette and used my Waterbrush to paint the image. I cut it out using the largest die in Sue Wilson's Maldives Die Set. I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using another die from Sue's Maldives Set.

I wanted to continue the colouring of the stamped image to the finishing touches die cuts. I cut Sue's Cape Daisies out of Coconut White Card and also the complete leaf from one of Sue's Autumn Leaf Trio. I painted the flowers with Straw Yellow Pixie Powder, the centres of the flowers with Burnt Orange Pixie Powder and the leaves with Pale Olive Pixie Powder. I cut the corresponding open leaf from Sue's Autumn Leaf Trio out of Antique Gold Pearl Card. I assembled the flowers and leaves as shown and added a couple of Gold Dazzlers.

I assembled the card as shown adding a 5mm White Pearl to each corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat
