Brocade.



















Julie Ranae has chosen this weeks colours for the Play Date Cafe challenge and I love them, I almost left it too late for the challenge this week as I have been busy making party invitations for a friend.  Managed to find an hour this morning and quickly made a card.


















I have just got a new stamp from Hero Arts called Floral Brocade, it reminds me of a William Morris fabric, very Art Nouveau. I stamped it onto some light green textured card and embossed with Antique Verdigris, I'm really pleased with the result as it actually looks like fabric.






















I got out my old favourite the Heartwinged butterfly, coloured it with copics and then added Glossy Accents to give a sheen.
I must get back to the invitations now, I will post one later.
