Crocuses with a touch of Deco-dence (posted by Judith)

Hi folks, here's another sample from me, using some of the new stamps available on the website I have used the 'Elegant Crocus' stamp plate for this sample.

I created a side step card, using yellow card, and stamped the Deco crocus border onto a strip of card. I masked a part of the stamp before I inked it up, in order to create a continuous strip, as I needed a longer piece of border than one length of the actual stamp. This meant that when I stamped for the second time, I omitted the end crocus. I coloured the main image with Polychromos pencils, using an image from a gardening catalogue for inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  1. The texture on that bulb is brilliant & I love the colours - that is just so utterly real with the papery brown bits too. The roundedness of the bulb is just so tactile I keep wanting to stroke the screen. the soft yellow & lilac is lovely together.

  3. A gorgeous card Judith, I love the colours you've used. I agree with Paula about the roundness of the bulb, it almost looks as though it's been stuck on top of the image.
