Alcohol inked bouquet.


Hi everyone, I've had this card made for a few days and have already missed some challenges I hoped to enter, time seems to just fly by these days!

 I used a new to me die called bouquet on some yupo paper coloured with alcohol inks, regular and pearl.

Here's a closer look at the shimmer.

The sentiment is a stamp from a set called doodled flowers by Happy Little Stampers, sadly retired now. There's no date on the set but I've had it for quite a few years.

I'm linking up to the yellow and green colour challenge at the Retro Rubber 

At Simon Says Stamp Monday the theme is frame it.
The Card Concept,
My card is in the clean and simple category. I was inspired bythe gorgeous sunflowers in the vase and on the cushions, pops of yellow and green.

Cuttlebug Mania, where it's anything goes so long as you use a manual diecutting machine, in my case a Cuttlebug!

Sizzix bouquet die; Ranger alcohol inks and pearl alcohol inks in greens and yellows; yupo paper;
Happy Little Stampers doodled flowers stamp; Versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die; circle die.

Thanks for visiting,

Oh my, that shine. Beautiful bouquet and gorgeous colors. I must look into alcohol pearl inks now.

This is stunning Cathy and I love the AIs with a finished pearly sheen in those beautiful colours, and using this die featuring a very pretty floral framed within the circle aperture, which is a wonderful look, and finished with the stitched rectangle and lovely elegant! x
