Floral Wishes

Hello Blog Friends - today's card is shabby and totally feminine - for me these are the easiest cards to create and a favourite.

The Background image has been stamped using the Our Daily Bred Designs Grunge Butterflies Background stamp using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Summer Sky and cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and Timeless Rectangles
Decorative Elements Nestabilities® .

The image is from the Flower Gallery transparent set by Penny Black Inc and has been stamped using

IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black.  I have coloured using  IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Memento™ Makers

The image has been cut/embossed using the Labels Four Nestabilities® and layered onto the Elegant Ovals Nestabilities Decorative Elements using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L- 3D Foam Squares.

The sentiment is from the Penny Black Inc  Special wishes transparent set and has also been stamped using VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black.  I have also used Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L- E-Z Runner and the bling from Want2Scrap©.  Finishing off with a double bow created using hand dyed Seam Binding and a recycled button.

This card is for the following challenges:

  1. I'm going through a phase where I'm embossing my backgrounds but when I get to stamping them I have to try something like this! It's better than any patterned paper because you can control which inks you use and how much! Great card, and great ideas!

  2. Beautiful card! It has given my some ideas.
