Pastel Funky Flowers

Here is another card that is now on its way to Jill in Yorkshire. For this card I stamped an image from the Funky Flowers stamp sheet and then used the flourishes and wording stamps from the Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet. On the flourish sheet you get absolutely loads of stamps as I wanted a nice range of wording and flourishes and they really mix together very well.

The background panel on the left of the card was done with the Icicle Creek set of Starburst Stains and then I stamped different flourishes and dots over the top once it had dried. The actual card base was stamped and embossed with flourishes along the right-hand edge and then the fine flourish was overstamped with Graphite Black Brilliance. The flourishes that you see in the top left and bottom right corners of the flower panel were stamped with Starlite Black Brilliance. The flowers were coloured with Copics which gave them a nice, fresh, clean look.

More tomorrow............

WOW WOW & WOW, this is simply gorgeous Kay, but then you have used my favourite colourways.
OOOOOOOOOO, I wish I was coming to Doncaster so I could see all of them in 'the flesh' so to speak.

Hi Kay,

Lovely card as usual. Great colours.

I recently bought some Starburst Stains, but haven't used them yet. Can you mix them with water and use in a spray bottle?

Hoping to visit ArtStamps at Newbury, so may see you.

Hi Pauline,

Yes you can use the Starburst Stains in a spray bottle - Jill actually did this in our Japanese Garden show on Create and Craft.

I am at Newbury but only on the Saturday so if you can brave the crowds I might see you there!!
