PAPER FLOWERS

Gosh, this card took a bit longer than usual; working with tissue paper takes a gentle touch and I am known for having the exact opposite!


I took inspiration from two of my fellow Demo's Loraine and Vicky and set about creating a card with flowers as the main theme.

I had fun with the inked flowers that make up the background of this card. I punched my flower from some scrap card an used the punched area as a kind of stencil. You can see a an other example of this over on Loraine's blog. You can really achieve great results with this technique. As you can see, I have varied the amount of ink applied to different areas to get lighter and darker shades. I also combined two colours on some areas to get a two toned finish.


For the small circles I wanted a faded finish so I stamped my image twice on scrap paper and then stamped on to my card background.


Cardstock: Going Grey and Whisper White
Ink:Green Galore, Basic Grey and Pixie Pink
Stamp Sets: A beautiful Thing (small circles) and Sincere Salutations
Accessories: 5 Petal flower punch
Non Stampin' Up!: Tissue paper, buttons


Ta Ta for now
