favourite flowers (by Veronica)

This rose image from the harlequin rose set of stamps has to be one of my favourites, it is a lovely big image, and doesn't really need anything else to make a card - very useful when you need a card in a hurry!
I used a fairly heavy white card to stamp and emboss the image, then added another favourite, brusho powders. I used the dinky spoons that were on the website last year, and sprinkled yellow, orange and green powders onto roughly appropriate areas of the stamp, then heavily spritzed it with  water, using enough water to let the colours spread out around the image.
Once it was dry, it was trimmed down, matted onto black card, then onto a white 5"x7" card blank.
Another very simple card using another of my favourites from pretty poppies this time.
Again stamped and embossed in black, then sponged with distress inks. Sentiment is from mackintosh sentiments set of clear stamps- so much easier to get the sentiment in the right place with clear stamps!

Everyone has been busy looking out old favourites, maybe one of yours will be next!
