How is your week going? It has been quite sunny here which has been nice for a change. It was just a bit too hot for Sports Day yesterday but that is behind us now.
I wanted to make a card for a friend that is going through a hard time at the moment.
I made the frame for the image with some of my Noble dies by Sue Wilson. I do like the piercing that you get with this set.
This has to be my favourite flower stamp it comes from the Birthday Blooms set by Stampin Up. It was stamped with black archival onto watercolour card this meant that I was able to colour it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and some water and a watercolour brush. Now can you see the dots in the background? That is another stamp from the set. I used two shades of Distress ink to stamp round the flower. Then I used a translucent mica powder to dust over the dots. I have to admit I had never done this before and now I am not sure why not the mica clung to the distress ink and I was left with a lovely sheen.
I liked it so much I did the same with the sentiment that also came with the Birthday Blooms stamp set.
I really enjoyed making this card I used so many of my favourite things to make it.
I would like to enter Challenge 21 at Jade's Sparkling Butterflies ,Challenge 24 at Cardz 4 Galz and the End of Term blog hop and prizes at House of Cards.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
