I am posting first for the Woodware challenge this week, not sure if that is good or bad really. The stamp that I have used is from Magenta it is called Daisy Corner and is available as a cling mounted stamp. I have again used the USArtQuest Stargazer palette to colour the flowers the palettes are so easy to use with a water brush and the effects are spectacular.
I have stamped the flower twice in Black Stazon and cut around it.
I have then cut out some of the flowers to add the extra ons to the card. I used Glossy Accents to apply the Micro Beads to the centre of the flowers. I have randomly curved the petals of the flowers and used differing highs of sticky fixers to give some movement to the overall effect.
The text is from a clear Stampendous set, Orchid Greetings it is one of my favourite greetings sets as I like the size and style of the text. The box that the text is in is also from the same set I find the box useful for making a place for the text.
Well I hope that you like my card and that you will have a look at the rest of the cards this week on the Woodware Blog. It is Francoise turn tomorrow. Thank you for popping in.
This week I have used layered peel offs for my flowers, they are really good fun and they are a nice thing to play with when you just want to watch telly and fiddle without much effort. The thing that I like about the peel offs is that you can change the appearance and creat 3D cards with them.
This photograph lets you see that the peel offs have had a home made mix of pink flock and glitter added to the sticky side of them. First peel them off and add centres then add the flock glitter mixture. I used pink, blue and purple peel offs but only the pink glitter/flock mixture. By using the various colours of peel offs I got enough colour variety without the mess that I would have had around the kitchen and the dog with lots off different glitter and flock going around.
The stamped image in the background was done with Onyx Black Versafine and is from a Stampendous Shape Shifter set, if you have not tried shape shifting you really should very exciting! Fran’s video will reveal all Shape Shifting.
The edges were done with a sponge and Stargazer Mica watecolour pallet, and the water in the vase was done with the pallet and a water brush.
Here you can see I have been adding the centres to the pale green leaves from the dark green sheet.
I hope that you have enjoyed this card pop over to the Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have been up to.
