I sincerely hope all my U.S. blog family had a happy thanksgiving yesterday!
A quick card from me today and another demo card from my Hochanda shows this week. This one is simpler to make than it looks honest.
I stared by stamping the Apple Blossom stamp to die for with Archival ink ( watering can which is a dark grey so it doesn't look too stark) onto a 13 x 13 cm square of coconut white foundation card. Next I used the summer Garden watercolour palette from cosmic shimmer to paint in all the flowers. I used a selection of the purple and lilac shaded in the set to colour the image. The great thing about the mica watercolours is that the mica adds a real shine to the piece which can be seen as you've the card.
Hopefully some of you saw this on air and know what I mean. Next I used the outside die from the butterflies in flight mini striplet to cut the stamped image into three equal pieces.
The remainder of the card was just a set of blue dusk layers from mounted onto a square card made with layers of the coconut white and blue dusk.
Next I coloured a piece of coconut white card with the colour cloud and cut it out using the outline die form the classic vase. I then cut a frame using the insert and outline from the same set and mounted then together to make the base vase. I cut off the bottom section and added this to the top to make a different shaped, wide necked, vase.
I stuck this over the centre panel to make it look like a 3D vase with the flowers in there.
I finished with a tie and bow made of white seam binding that I coloured using the Decadent Denim colour cloud blending ink form Phil Martin's range for Cosmic Shimmer.
I will announce the winners of this weeks card giveaways tomorrow ( Saturday)
