I missed one...

Happy Wednesday,

When I checked my many files of pictures of Cards I have made I found today's card, from the new release of Stamps to die for and Dies designed by Sue Wilson, I found this card that somehow I missed and didn't blog!  I thought it deserved its day in the sun!

Quite a simple card for me with no large bow and again in pink!  I stamped the floret circle stamp in watering can archival ink and coloured the flowers and around the foliage wit my watercolour pencils to give a soft chalky colouring.

I then cut this out using the matching Melbourne die form the Australian collection use g the outline die, which cuts it out perfectly, and the inner circle that has the stunning piercing around the edges.  I added a bow a thin double sided satin ribbon and foam mounted this on a squire of coconut white before adding to a card of layers of blush, white and raspberry.

For the main car I used the Rococo triplet and the quilted circles A4 pinpoint embossing folder.

  26. Hello John

    Gorgeous card today. Love the colours you have used and the stamp work is beautiful.

    I especially love your cards when you have used narrow ribbon. I have now turned to using more of this type of ribbon on my own cards.
