It's a Beautiful Day...

Hi folks, a wee card from me today!

I have been waiting so long for this this stamp set to be back in stock and couldn't believe it when I noticed it was available in My Mums Craft Shop.

Now initially I was trying to stamp and cut out the images with my scan n cut but was having a bit of trouble however the lovely Janine and Cass soon sorted me out but that card is work in progress so in the meantime I made this one.

I white embossed the flower and leaves and then watercoloured them using my zig clean colour brush pens (omg I love these pens).  I gradually added more layers of colour and then once I was happy I then dragged out some of the colour from the flower and leaves to add a bit of subtle shading around the images.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink and layered on top.

I then added some black splodges, sequins to finish.

products used:

Addicted to Stamps - embossing
Allsorts - Pink October
Colour Crazy challenge - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - totally resistable (white embossing)




Absolutely gorgeous Fi! You have so nailed colouring these flowers and using the Zig Color watercolour pens. I'm definitely coming to you for tips.

This another stunner of a card missy. <3 said...
