Well, I’m sure it won’t look like it but it’s taken me all afternoon to make these VERY clean and simple cards – well out of my comfort zone – I don’t do clean and simple, or very rarely. I’m sure most people would do these in half an hour – at the most – but I really struggled.
I use the Penny Black flowers a lot and, occasionally, in this way, with felt tip pens – but the Stampendous flowers were done with paper piecing and silver embossing AND it’s layered on silver mirror card, which I’ve probably had for about 8 years. I find it much, much easier to work with colour. I didn’t think I was a ‘more is more’ type of person, but perhaps I am?
The pink paper (Scrapbook paper for the blooms themselves) really IS pink – not this deeper colour you can see here. Got a new scanner, so I obviously need to fine tune it – way too many options on it…
