Hello, welcome back. I was having a look through all my stamps the other day and found this pretty background one. I think it is based on 'The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' so I am guessing Wild Roses. Not too sure but I think my aunt used to call them Dog roses but I might be very wrong. I am not brilliant on names for wild flowers. Anyway I have used this stamp as the basis for my card for the challenge at Sweet Lilac Flowers, which this time is titled 'Say it With Flowers' I think most of us enjoy making floral cards.
I started by making a mask for my stencil out of copy paper. Just draw round stencil and then cut out the inside carefully on the lines. Then I taped the stencil to a piece of card , making a hinge at the top. I brushed some Meadow Adirondack through the aperture, just lightly. Lift up the stencil to have a little look and decide if more ink needed.
When I was happy with the colour I removed the stencil and placed the copy paper mask I had made over the design. Then I stamped my flowers into place.
Next step was to use my Spectrum Noir pencils and colour in the stamped image.
I mounted the design onto a piece of contrasting paper,added another line around the edge of the card. Then some of the Sweet Lilac flowers and a few pearls
I die cut a greeting in the same paper as background and added to the top.
Quite a simple card but looks effective I think. So I am going to enter this into the challenge at Sweet Lilac. Do have a look at their website and also maybe put your own entry into the challenge, might win some lovely flowers. Thankyou for visiting. xx
