Flower Cross Card by Debbie

As my love of stamping has grown over the years I have looked at stamps in a different light hoping to get as much out of them as I can.
I wanted to create a border from the flower cross from the Easter Traditions stamps.



My card is an 8x8 and I started by dividing the the four sides in half and putting a pencil line. I then put a dot in the centre to help me line up the crosses. I apologise as I can't remember which ink I used for the background crosses, it's a pinky/peach colour. I trimmed the background and layered onto brown card. The cross in the centre was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia a few times and decoupaged. The squares of coloured card are from my stash of Alcohol inks papers.

Thanks for stopping by I know the girls really appreciate your comments.
