Double Flower Power (by Asha)

Good morning, friends. I'm still playing with the new Flowerhead stamps and today I've used 2 -  Dotty Centre Flowerhead and Circle Centre Flowerhead - to make a one layer card.
  1. Start by stamping one flowerhead in the top right hand corner in the front of the card base and another in the top left hand corner inside the card.
  2. Trim the around the flowerheads so that they stick out of the top and side edges. 
  3. Colour the flowerheads. I used Faber-Castell Polychromos.
  4. Start at the edges and continue to blend the Distress Inks inward. Stopping short of the flowerheads creates a halo effect.
  5. Stamp a greeting from Birthday Words A5 sheet and fill the rest of the card with leaves from Autumn Poppy A5 sheet.
  6. For a final flourish, little droplets of Liquid Pearl and a few strokes of Clear Wink of Stella pen on the petals.



This is the inside of the card. As with the card front, I inked the inside edges with Distress Inks too.

So there you have it - a floral one layer card, perfect for mailing. I hope you'll give it a try. Details on tools and products used above are available on my blog.  Don't forget to stop by for more fabulous makes by my team mates.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a crafty weekend!

Beijinhos,
Asha
