flower power (by Veronica)

 I hope everyone had an enoyable Christmas, with lots of crafty goodies coming your way! It was nice to be able to sit and watch Lesley on tv on Saturday, even though I should have been sorting stuff out.....

 Here are the last of my samples using  the flower stamps.
I made notelets using kraft card, with white embossed images, coloured using some ancient pots of H2Os.
I made a folder to hold them, just a sheet of card folded into three. The background stamp was stamped using vintage photo distress ink, and the fuchsia stamped and embossed in white onto an oval die cut in brown card.








My final card used the lovely big lily stamp, stamped in black versafine and clear embossed. It was coloured with brusho powders, trying to keep most of the powders in appropriate places -not always successfully.
After spritzing with water I used a paintbrush to spread the colour into the petals. Once dry, the sentiment was stamped and the image trimmed to fit onto a 5"x7" white card blank with a red mat layer.

  1. I think I have some of those little pots somewhere! I like the effect of white embossing on Kraft card and that lily stamp is fab.
