Take 5 - Flowers And Friends

Hello friends, followers and family, today I have an Oak House Studio Take 5 blog post for you, the theme this month is "WORDS".   Why not join in the challenge with your own project using Oak House Studio products, pop over and join the Facebook Group to find out how, and for details of the fabulous prize up for grabs.   

My card is a quick and easy one using totally turquoise and Peter's pear pure colour chemistry inks and grey pigment ink.  I used a die cut swirl for the flower heads but thought afterwards that I could have stamped and white heat embossed using the rose from the texture elements stamp set.  The flower stems were hand drawn using a pencil so they blended in with the grey colouring of the garden words stamping and friends sentiment. 

The front panel of the card was made using a lightly sprayed piece of card, using totally turquoise ink.  This was overstamped with a few patches of the English garden words stamp in slate grey pigment ink.  two die cut swirls were placed over the words and the flower stems drawn in and coloured with Peter's pear ink.  the sentiment was stamped on white card and cut out using a die.  A few sequins were scattered around the card to finish.

All card used from Papermilldirect.
