Lavinia Add A Flower



Good morning bloggers, followers and friends I am writing this post from a very autumnal Devon Sat relaxing in the caravan.  I have been working on my card for the  Lavinia Stamps challenge, this month's challenge Is "to add a flower".  My flower is in the stamped image, with a few more thrown in on the stamped and embossed background.  I love this stamp and have done another three similar cards in different colours for birthdays coming up next month.

A 15cm x 15cm card blank was made using white pearlescent card from The Papermilldirect,  it was embossed with flowers and leaves from a Hero Arts set using embossing ink them embossed with silver pearl embossing powder.  The stamped image was coloured with Promarkers and cut out using a Spellbinders die.  Using distress inks in squeezed lemonade and salty ocean I coloured over the stamped background, the image was attached to a doily and then to the card.
 

I do love the resist technique, the pearl embossing powder was a surprise find in my box of old powders I don't think it had been used before.  An insert was added to the card (no photo sorry) I used matching pearlescent paper, stamped the flower in the bottom righthand corner and embossed it, then coloured it as the backing on the card.

Well back to relaxing, the weather is changeable but the peace and tranquility is wonderful.  See you all soon.  Will try to return any comments but the wifi is a bit hit and miss, only hope I can get this post entered into the Lavinia Challenge.
