Colouring Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

Another Stamp to die for coloured with the amazing Graphmaster alcohol pens this time its the Chrysanthemum Bouquet stamp and the matching Bermuda die however I decided just to use part of the design.














I stamped the image using memento black ink ( as I was colouring with Alcohol) and coloured the image as shown using yellows and warm greys.  Next I cut out the inner section of the image and the overlapping flowers.  I added this too a die cut in primrose foundation card with the outer and detail die from the Bermuda set from the new Sue Wilson collection for Creative Expressions.


I made up the card using the corner die form the Atlantic ocean collection cut into papyrus foundation card to make the pattern as shown.  Next I added a strip of matching yellow organza ribbon and a trail of the foliage from the Chrysathemum die set in pale grey.


A few layers of papyrus, primrose and soft grey and finished.

Tomorrow my Vintage card form Friday and news about my new Releases that will be revealed at the trade show tomorrow.


Ingredients:
Dies - SW Bermuda, Chrysathemum, Atlantic collection corner, border and tag
Card: papyrus, Primrose and slate grey
Stamp: Chrysathemum Bouquet

Enjoy...

  15. What a gorgeous card, John. I have just bought the stamp to go with the Bora Bora die and it's all your fault!
    I got a glimpse of the new stamps at CE Towers the other day and they look great.

  46. Hi John!
    I looked at your card sadly because I didn't have that gorgeous border die. Then I saw that you had made it with corners that I do have! What an ingenious idea! Thank you for giving that to us! I'm going to email you to find out if you fussy cut the whole flower bunch. So beautiful!
    Love,
