A Country Life - Flowers in bloom

Hello folks

Two posts in one day, I am spoiling you!! I wanted to remind you that Fiona is back with the pick of the week today at 12pm on Create and Craft TV. I do hope you can join her.

This is another of the cards I made for the launch -
Quite a different feel to this card although I still used my Spectrum Aquas to colour the image - 

  • crimson, burgundy, aquamarine and evergreen

The other ingredients were - 

  • matt black card (for the card base), Sheena's stamping card (for the background) and green core'dinations
  • rose garden embossing folder
  • Pebeo renaissance gold gilding wax
  • Die'sire edgeables Lattice Flourish die (free with issue 8 of the Inspirations magazine)
  • black pearls from my stash

To make the background paper I scribbled crimson and burgundy Aquas onto my glass cutting machin, spritzed it with water and mopped up the ink with a piece of Sheena's stamping card. Once the card was dry I embossed it and added some gilding wax.

Thank you for stopping by today.
