LOC NR Friendship Posy

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening - depending where you are!  It is afternoon for me here in Australia and a wet one one in Canberra, it is also the first day back at school for my three teenagers and they are far from impressed - me...well, I am making the most of the time!

To show you a card I created using the gorgeous Pansy Corner cling art stamp and Artful Endearments cling art stamp set from Layers of Colors new release.  I am loving these images and have been inspired by visiting the Design Team galleries - it never ceases to amaze me how differently we are all inspired - if you have seen the galleries you can find them here.

The image has been coloured with SU Chalks/Pastels - one of my favourite mediums for colouring!!  I have added a touch of color to the sentiment using the Chalks as well.  This has been layered onto a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles - this one is in my next order, I have borrowed a friends to run some off but am running LOW - arghhh!!!  For all of my Die Cutting I use the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and LOVE it!

You can see the colouring a bit better here - it is surprising what a touch of colour can add!  The more I create with the ArtFul Endearments art stamp set, The more I am loving the font - it is designed by Laura Kirste Campbell, Layers of Colors owner and artist.

The background embossing folder is from Stampin Up, the Bow is created using Seam Binding and my Bow-Easy - a perfect combination (in my opinion), all held together with a gorgeous bling brad.
