Floral Fantasy.

Good Saturday afternoon  folks,

Hope your weekend has got off to a good start  and you are all happy.    The weather here is great, blue skies and sunshine !   there was a very small shower of rain earlier but nothing to speak of.    The only complaint I have is,  that it is very windy but hey! we have sunshine lol!   We can put up with that, as long as we have the beautiful sunshine lol!

I thought I would post my blog this afternoon instead of this evening, as I do like to watch the T.V. on a Saturday evening and relax with my Hubby.      My card today was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts in April this year.  For this card I have used amongst other things, their Daisy Flourish Border stencil and Mixed Media Spray Inks.

Fold the ready creased white card down the centre crease line, making a 7"x7" base card on which to work   Lay the daisy flourish border stencil onto the top left corner and using a blending tool, colour the design using  distress inks - Peacock feathers, Seedless preserves, Squeezed lemonade & Mowed lawn.   

Repeat the above for the bottom right corner.   Tale a piece of smooth white card and lay the stencil onto it and put through an embossing machine and emboss.

Colour with the Mixed Media Spray Inks and when dry, sand with a sanding block, taking away some of the colour, which accentuates the flourish design.

Trim this down to about four and a half inches square.   Matt onto a slightly larger piece of white card, then on to some maroon card.

Matt this onto the centre of the base card.   Glue three green gemstones to the top  right and the bottom left corners of the base card.

Colour a further piece of white card, using the spray inks, then die-cut the flowers using the Tim Holtz flower dies.   Matt these one on top of the other and glue to the centre of the card.   Glue a green gemstone to the centre of the flower.   Add some Antique gold Starlight paint to the edges of the petals.

Well that's all from me for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend and I do hope you have some sunshine too.  See you all soon.

                                                                Love and rainbows,

                                                             Crafty Hugs   Jennifer xx.
