I thought I would go with s simplistic card today that takes all its effects from stamping, colouring and hand cutting. Yes there is no die cutting anywhere on this card.
I started by stamping the image, from the singles range by Creative expressions four times around a hand cut square of coconut foundation card in archival black ink. Next I hand cut the centre out and coloured the flowers using a watercolour pencil and shaded the flowers by washing over with water.
The remainder is simply matting and layering to create a 21cm x 21cm square card (i use A3 card to create these large cards however you can join 2 sheets of A4 to get the same effect. I stamped the sentiment, form the friends set by CE, in the aperture. Finally I stamped the image once more on scrap card, coloured it the same way and cut of the flowers. I added these to the frame around the aperture and finished. A simple stamped affair that could make a beautiful card for anyone.
