So before I start seriously crafting and lose myself for hours I thought I'd post this card up now! I had a few days off over Christmas and sat down and played around with some of my stamps and this is one of the cards that I produced for Sir Stampalot. Sir Stampalot have been really good to me over the years and I am always promising them to send them some cards and finally I made good on my promise! The main image is by Penny Black and called Windflower which I inked up using brush markers and lightly spritzed with water before stamping it out - just like you see me do on the Basics and Beyond DVD. The wording was taken from a Penny Black clear stamp set, the flourish (on the flower panel) is by Judikins, dotty swirl is by Denami and I have absolutely no idea whose the flourish is in the bottom left corner of the card - it's too long ago!! I do remember that the green panel was embossed using my Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder!
By the way.....................why is it that when you duplicate colours from a real life flower it ends up looking not quite right?? I actually took these colours on my flowers from real life flowers that were in a gardening catalogue and I don't actually like mine whereas the proper flowers looked great! NOT FAIR!!
