I used Because I Care level 1 hostess stamp set for this card, the flower is beautiful and I thought I would try to capture the fading colours of these flower heads in Autumn. All of my card edges have been ripped and distressed, I used the En Francais background stamp for the text before covering it with Tea Stain and Mahogany distressing inks. I stamped the flower head and used my water brush to colour the image using Stampin' Write markers, bleding the colours together, I then added more Tea Stain Distressing ink before lightly misting and scrumpling all of the layers, once opened flat I used Champagne Shimmer Paint made into a fine misting spray to add a bit of sparkle. Once the layers were dry I assembled the card and added some lovely taffeta ribbon that I had dragged the distressing ink over to match the card. I used the colour spritzer tool to mist a bit of colour around the edges of the card.
Colours are Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede.
I am quite pleased with teh result of this card, and I would like to make a couple of scrapbook pages in this style as I am really enjoying scrapbooking some of the many photos of Lucy and Philip at the moment.
