Hello my lovely friends,
How are you all ? well I hope. I have had a lovely afternoon crafting, working on design team work which I cannot show you yet. Tonight I would like to share a card with you which I made in May 2012 and uses quite a few different stamp sets but the main image is the Echinacea Stamp, which I loved from the day Sue and Harvey added it to the Imagination Craft's website. This is such a beautiful botanical stamp and is a positive/negative stamp. It is still available from their website and, as it happens, is in the bargain basement for only £3.50 a bargain if ever there was one lol!! ok let's get on with the card shall we.
Make a base card from black card. Take a slightly smaller piece of buff coloured card and randomly stamp it with the stamps using a black ink pad, stamping first onto a scrap of paper and using the second impression on the card. Matt this onto the base card. Cut a two inch strip of black card and matt this
across the stamped card but not in the centre, just above halfway.
Take another piece of black card the same width but about one inch wide and rub over with a Versamark pad, then brush the mica powders of your choice over it, I used copper, orange and green from the Brights Mica Set. Fix this across the centre of the black strip.
Punch out three large flowers from some kingfisher blue card and glue onto the mica strip, one at each end and one in the bottom right corner of the card. Punch out six small black flowers and glue to the three large flowers. Glue two small flowers to the card and the third black flower next to the large blue flower on the bottom right. Glue a gem to the centre of each flower and glue three more gems in a line at the top of the card.
Using the Marianne Design border die, cut out and emboss the border using the kingfisher blue card.
Add some sticky foam pads to the back and fix in position at an angle, over the black and mica border.
Well that's it friends, hope you like it. Take care of yourselves and have a good week. I'll be back soon, hope you will too !!
Love and rainbows.
