More Flowers!


More time to play with my stamps today as we are having April showers!!  I decided to make another card with my Tim Holtz Flower Garden set, after stamping and embossing the flowers on water colour paper, I  coloured the images and decided that I wanted the colours to be subtle.  So I cut a panel of Vellum and stitched it to my coloured panel.  I then added a butterfly and the sentiment.
There is a new challenge blog set up by Monica and Lilian called "Creative with Stamps" Their first challenge is " Butterflies"  I love a new challenge so I will be adding this card.







My next card is a very simple CAS Birthday card, I found an old Hero Arts stamp "Block of four sqaures" in my draw and had to ink it up again! I have just added a die from Simon Says, some pearls and a sentiment.

Hope you are having a great week.
