Hi everyone, we had some long awaited rain here today to freshen everything up and help to fill up our water tanks.
I had fun getting dirty potting up some hanging baskets with petunias, so hopefully there will be lots of Spring colour on our deck soon.
I was inspired by a few challenges to make this card.
At AAA Cards the theme is autumn colours, with the optional twist of using fabric.
At Addicted to Stamps & More the theme is to make your mark.
I coloured the flower with inktense pencils and I swiped over the embossed text on the tag with Delicata copper ink to make it stand out.
My foliage is die cut from snippets of card and I modified it by snipping some off and gluing on some from another project. so I'm visiting the playground at
At Simon Says Stamp Monday the theme is to love this technique.
I love a few techniques including fussy cutting and and did this with the flower, and using embossing folders for texture.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the theme is die crazy.
I've used 3 dies and 2 punches on this tag (the centre of the flower is made up from 2 smaller punched flowers).
Stamp: SU flower shop. Embossing folder: SU text
Dies/punches: Memory Box fresh foliage and Primo label; MFT tag stax; Carl and Punch Bunch flower punches.
Other: versafine ink & clear ep; Delicata copper ink; distress ink for foliage; inktense pencils; sentiment sticker.
Thanks for visiting,
