Its all about flowers





This month at Stamping Sensations the challenge is Anything With Flowers so lots of scope  to burst into bloom !  We are sponsored this month by Crafty Individuals who are offering a fantastic prize of £35 to spend in their shop

Although I have to admit I have a drawer full of CI Stamps I was surprised to find I had very few flower ones but for my top card I used one of my favourites, such a pretty stamp. I stamped in Versafine over a piece of Oxide ink paper left over from another card,used a bit of bleach to lift the colour from some of the flowers and added a bit of colour.  For my second card I got a bit carried away with the background,distress inks,stencilling,stamping etc.The two flower pieces were stamped and embossed in black  and coloured with markers.

Thanks for looking and I hope to see you joining in with our challenge this month.

  1. Two totally different but equally lovely creation Joan, the first has such a dreamy feel and the second pretty fresh colours.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  2. These are both absolutely gorgeous, Joan! Although the designs are so different from each other, they each showcase the flowers so beautifully. I love the contrast of the blue and yellow in the first one, and the bright colours of the second.

  6. Two gorgeous cards Joan and both quite different. I really like how you've only used a touch of yellow to colour your first card and I can see some delicate touches of the same colour in the background. Like me, I know you're a fan of making your own backgrounds and the background on your second card makes a perfect backdrop for those gorgeous flowers. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
