A new challenge.


This is a new challenge for me, but when I saw the mood board over at Simply Create, Alford I knew I would have to make a card.  I love these colours and the images are beautiful so I had to make a pretty card to match!


I have been having more fun with layered backgrounds and made this using Broken China distress ink on my HA Classic Fabric stamp and then spraying with perfect pearls for a light shimmer.  I have then lightly stamped the envelope pattered stamp just on the edges.
Hope you are all having a great St Patricks Day!


Supplies: Hero Arts stamps. CG245 Classic Fabric.  S5507 Envelope Pattern. CL 383 Antique Engravings. Broken China Distress ink. Flowers, buttons, lace, ribbon and pearls.
