Another Floral

 Another floral card to share today and this one was made using a stamp which I came across when looking for something else (as you do) and realised that it hadn't been used recently.  Stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured using Inktense pencils and a water brush..  Once coloured I looked for a selection of toning papers and card.  The challenge on Allsorts this time is to use a favourite stamp or die and I'd been wondering just how I could choose one favourite - too difficult really but as fuchsias are so pretty and one of my favourite flowers I'm popping over to their blog with this card even though I thought I'd probably not enter this week 😉

Floral Birthday

 I seem to make quite a lot of floral cards but they always seem popular and there are endless ways of combining elements to come up with varying designs.  The ones on this card had been fussy cut from some patterned paper a while ago and had been sitting in one of my oddments boxes, where I also came across the lacy parchment embellishment (gifted from a crafty friend) which I backed with a piece of mauve card.  The splodgy background had been produced during an inky play session so I've combined everything to make this card after deciding to leave the flowers uncoloured, echoing the black flower centres with a matching sentiment.

Butterfly Challenge #170

 Today's card is for the Butterfly Challenge where we have options of various colours, a theme and a shaped  card design as usual - read all about it HERE and see the great inspiration cards from Mrs. A.This time I've used two of the colours, three different patterned papers and of course butterflies (some on one of the papers and some added gold ones.  The floral motif was die cut from white pearl card and I carefully saved all the flower petals, coloured them with an alcohol pen and then popped them back in - a bit fiddly but worth it I think 😉
