flower power (by Veronica)

 Here I have used flower images from Chocolate Baroque to create three cards.

My first is a bit grungy, using the alium collage as the main stamp, stamped in versamark ink onto black card and white embossed.. I used stamps from just useful and paisley elephant stamped randomly in white pigment ink to create the background. (Paisley elephant is on the list of retired stamps since I made this card, any fancy script stamp would be just as good)

The remaining cards are very similar, both use a background created using distress inks splodged onto a mat and spritzed with water and mopped up with card. Once piece of card was dry, I stamped the nature themed words from slim word strip 1 several times in distress oxide ink across the card, staggering repeat stamping.  Once it was dry, I cut two pieces to fit  a DL card blank and stamped two different images from not more flowers. The dandelion was clear embossed after stamping in black versafine, and the gerbera(?) was coloured with alcohol marker pens. 

Both stamped images were matted onto black card and then added to the white DL card blanks

  1. I love the fabulous contrast of white embossing on black card for the first using that super allium Veronica, and then the next two using the words strips in the background..I can see how useful they are, and the two different flowers work brilliantly over the top. x
