Seed Heads (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card created using the beautiful seed head stamp from Poppy Meadow


I've used a shaped card blank, embossed with a prima mask before applying distress ink with a blending tool (I've used peeled paint, forest moss and vintage photo). I coloured the stamp with distress markers and  misted it with water and stamped it, using a paint brush and a little water to drag the colour out. The image was die cut with nestabilities and inked before popping it on the card with 3D foam. I've added some raffia ribbon, a wooden button and some green ribbon to finish off

This card has quite an Autumn feel, hopefully it will be a while before we start seeing Autumn colours in our gardens but hopefully this card shows that these stamps are really versatile.

Thanks for visiting today

  1. The neutral tones are beautiful in this & I love the way the embossing has given dimensionanl interest to the card base. The restrained use of white acts as a lovely highlight too, particularly positioned next to the brown mat. I love the way it picks up on the white stitching of your ribbon.
