palm fan 2

 Two slightly different takes today using the lovely new baroque ornaments stamps.
For the first card, I wanted to use up some leftover background pieces, using the palm fan embossed in white then coloured with turquoise and leaf green brusho powders.
I cut strips of background, cut streamer edges on the bottom of the strips, then glued them onto white card. The mat was a matching piece of turquoise card, and the base card is 20cm sqaure white card blank.
 I used a darker piece of brushoed card in similar colours to stamp and emboss the palm fan in black, cut it out, added it with foam pads.
The second uses the teardrop stamp as well as the palm fan, but only bits of them!
I had several stamped images that didn't quite work with the brusho backgrounds, and this way I could still use them.
Background was a piece of plain brusho, using leaf green and turquoise again, and a think black mat. Wording is from words of inspiration, stamped in black versafine
( I won't argue if you think it is more of a nightmare, it was one of those 3am ideas!)
I cut out the large fans from the palm fan images and the flowery edges from the teardrop images, and glued them down to represent flowers.
Base card blank is white 15cm square
I hope this has given you some different ideas on how to use these lovely stamps (or even how not!)

  1. Two wonderful cards Veronica. Those pretty fishtail banners look great as a background to the ornament on the first and shows that we should keep all our leftovers, and cutting the orname to form the flowers ln the second is quirky and different and works really well over that beautiful washy background on the second. Gorgeous colours too. x
