Sweetpeas for my Sweet


Todays card has been created from one of the new Flourishes Spring stamps, its a beautiful bouquet of Sweetpeas. You will find these stamps on their blogspot http://flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/search/label/March%20Release.

I stamped the image again onto white card and coloured it with my Karisma colouring pencils, Ive been using these quite a lot lately, they are really easy to use as they are very waxy and are very smooth when you build up the colours on top of one another. I then cut it out and mounted it onto the deep purple card.

The base card is a A3 piece of white card cut down to a 8.1/2" x 7" size, then I have layered up the dark purple card and a piece of the Artylicious paper from Butterfly Fusion Cd. The second layer is another of the papers from the same cd and Ive mounted this up in the same way as the first layer.

I then stuck my stamped mounted image onto this mount not quite in the centre, I have also stamped another of the Flourishes greetings onto a piece of white card and mounted this also onto a piece of the left over purple card. I should have said that I used a gold pen around the edge of my coloured image and my greeting, just to take away the harshness of the white.
