Hi there everyone. I had a card to make for a lovely friend whose birthday it is so I thought I would get out my Aall and Create Set again which has several different flowers and some sentiments which is called Eclectic Stems (No. 199).
I used the large flower which reminds me of a quirky poppy and stamped it twice on to a piece of white card using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then fussy cut both flowers out and coloured with my Distress Inks using Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon and Black Soot using a waterbrush.
I then made the background. I had a piece of card which I had been using some inks on when making some backgrounds but wasn't in love with this particular one, so I turned it over and decided to use the back which had the meerest hint in places of orange which I thought would go with what I was planning. I then used an embossing folder called Cable Knit by XCut, but I have had it so long I don't think you can get it any more. I then inked this with some Salty Ocean DI and then added some Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord to break it up a bit and darkened the edges too which makes it pop a bit when added to the card.
I finished by making a sentiment tag from a piece of black card and white heat embossed the sentiment with WOW Opaque Bright White EP, and to this I added a piece of blue baker's twine tied into a bow.
I want to thank you for visiting me and I hope to see you again soon.
