Bright Flowers

Morning guys.  I know I keep saying this but I really don't know where the time keeps going to!!  I had fully intended to post something up yesterday and what with one thing and another I never got round to it!

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!!

Penny Black stamps and Marvy Le Plume II markers from Sir Stampalot
Judikins and Denami stamps from Stamp Addicts

Hi Kay,

I think the flowers look okay. They add to the muted feel of the card.

Kay, it's beautiful! I love the colours. Those penny black stamps are so beautiful. I think I'm going to have to buy that clear set of words, now!

Hello Kay

Don't know why you are worrying as the flowers are perfectly o.k.

Can understand completely your saying that you don't know where the time goes too ---- sorry to say that the older one gets the faster time flies!!

Although could be the older one gets the slower one becomes hence things take so much longer to get done!!

A real conundrum!!

Take care! Best regards.
a.k.a., Rita

Thanks very much guys. Perhaps it is because I have never been a fan of using pink and purple together!!
