LOC Pearls and Fans

It is time to show you some more of the cards made with the Layers of Color New Release Clear Art Stamps, this card is made with the Flowering Gems set.  These flowers are just gorgeous to work with and are so versitile, I decided to make this card with a very vintage feel, but you can see how the other Designers have used it by clicking here


These stamps have been created to be used with gems if you wanted to, I have used two different colour pearls here and love the look that they give.  I chose colours that I see in our hydrangers and used that as my inspiration.

I coloured the flowers with chalks using a Blender Pen, you can see my Tutorial on chalking here.  I layered the flowers on a mixture of dimensionals and 3D foam dots to give varying heights.  I added a fan that I was sent in a RAK from my dear friend Pam (aka pam124).  This whole arrangement is layered onto a doily that I saved from a tin of biscults ( it was the only non fattening thing in the whole tin! LOL!) this was then layered onto some embossed CS that has been sponged, then a strip of torn DP with the edges sponged and a strip of lace.  I am partial to layering and texture on my cards...this one is no exception!

 Pearls have been added to the centre of the flowers and steymans scattered through the arrangement...these are only little but sometimes it is the little things that add just the right touch!

This card qualifies for the Die Cuts R Us Challenge - to create a girlie project - this is pretty girlie!!
Creative Inspirations Challenge is all about sparkle and this card has plenty of that!
The Alphabet Challenge Blog is all about Flowers this week - and flowers we have!
