A bouquet of Good Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Watercolour Card. I added some CS Inky Midnight Acrylic Mixed Media Paint to a mister bottle with some water and gave it a good mix. I misted some onto the Watercolour Card and also misted some Phill Martin CS Vintage Blue Mister. I blotted the excess off with Kitchen Roll.

Once dry, I trimmed it and stamped the Woodware Long Tall Flowers Stamp using Jet Black Archival. I added some Vintage Blue Mister to a Water Brush and used it to paint the flowers. When dry, I added some White Pen and some black lines around the edges using a Pigma Micron Pen. I matted onto Black Card and then a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment that comes in the same set onto some more of my background card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B and cut a mat out of Black Card using Sue's Double Pierced Squares. I added a little White Pen.

  4. What a lovely card Julia. I thought that the frame was made using a stamp and then read that you had done it freehand with micron pens. Very clever and effective! Definitely an idea to try, thanks. X
