Flowers are from the absolutely lovely Sale-A-Bration Flowering Fields stamp set, if you have fallen in love with it and just have to have it don't hesitate to order because it is only available for a limited time. I have used Basic Black Archival ink for stamping. I added the adorable butterfly today, just love it!
I used Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the flowers so that I could achieve this layout - it takes out all the guess work!
In today's card I have used a sentiment from the Tin of Cards set, on Sunday's card I used One Big Meaning. I punched and die cut the circles for the sentiment, and popped up on dimensionals for a layer effect. Depending on your sentiment you can change the size or shape.
My card today has a pink theme, I have used an Aqua Painter to colour the flowers using, Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi and Blackberry Bliss. I have gone over all the colours using a Wink of Stella to give a lovely shimmer. Sunday's card had a blue theme, I used the co-ordinating colours from the Wildflower DSP. Using Aqua Painters allows you to change the depth of colour by adding more ink or "fading" by adding more water.
I would call myself bow challenged, but all that has changed since I got my hands on "Bow-Easy". I watched a couple of You Tube clips and my fear of bow has disappeared! I have used 1/2 inch seam binding ribbon for the bow, Pink Pirouette today, Soft Sky on Sunday.
