Week of Snippets #4 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’m back with another snippets project and for this one I used a lovely new stamp that was an Ebay bargain lol, lovely to colour it was because it’s a jumbo stamp and here is my card …

A 148mm square card
It has some depth
The beautiful flower stamp
I'm loving this giant flower stamp

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #467 In the Pink

Joy Clair Challenge & Inspiration May

Time Out Challenge Inspired by these words:
Friends are the charming gardeners
who make our Souls Blossom 

The background layer on this card was left over from another project, I used a small La Blanche stamp to stamp script the whole way across the card using Distress ink and once covered I lightly sprayed with water before drying with my heat tool. I stamped the flower twice onto white card snippets using a very pale ink pad and then I coloured the flowers with a mixture of Distress re-inkers, Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and Sakura gel pens. I left the stamped and coloured flowers to dry overnight, thankfully it was that time of day when I stamped them, then the next day I coloured the background of one with Distress re-inkers and fussy cut the other so that I could decoupage it. I really wanted the flower to be the star of this card so I only added a simple pink velvet bow to the card once I had glued the stamped and decoupaged flower panel onto it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
