Shrunk flowers

Good morning. My thanks to those of you who have left me such lovely comments over the past couple of days. I am still really busy so haven't had the time to reply to them but be assured that I am reading them and that they mean a lot to me!!

Anyway with that said here is another of those Craft Barn cards made with the Funky Flowers and Fancy Flourishes stamp sheets. As you can see this time I stamped the flowers onto frosted shrink plastic using Graphite Black Brilliance. I did all my stamping and colouring (using Coloursoft pencils) on the frosted side and then shrunk them down. They actually shrink down to quite a nice size.

The background paper is that Arabella one again from Basic Grey with flourishes stamped over the top of it and around the edge. I really like decorating my background papers in this way. Being a stamper first and foremost, using background papers is a bit alien to me but being able to decorate them somehow makes them more appealing to me!!
