My Friend and I

Todays card hasn't come out as well as I would have liked but I thought you might like to see what the end result is.

The stamp is one of the Lelo Design stamps, I believe its called You go First, but as I have sat them onto grass I changed it to my friend and I.

The image has been stamped onto white card and coloured with my watercolour Bruynzeel pencils, and then with a damp brush painted out. I left it to dry before cutting it out with my Wizard Die, I also cut a larger mount with a Scalloped Die to mount it on to.

The base card is a piece of A4 white card folded in half and cut to 6"x6" size, I have stuck a green flowered backing paper on top of this and then made my mounts from several different pieces of paper from the same set of papers, these I think were from one of my magazines.

I stamped the greeting onto another piece of white card and mounted it in the same way as the image and positioned in onto the base card, after which I have stamped some flourishes from my Stamp Tapestry clear set of stamps around the right edge.

To finish of the card I have stuck two of my Yellow Mulberry flowers from my crafty stash. As I said I am not particularly pleased with the image as the one I wanted to put on there was the wrong size so I rather rushed to colour this one and I havent made a very good job of it, never mind it will teach me not to do things in a rush.
