Aqua Flower

Hello everyone. You may have missed me posting this past week or so – but I’ve been sunning myself in Turkey – in 30+ degrees sunshine. Good grief – it was hot. I can safely say that I spent more time in the shade reading, than in the sun. I must have gone through at least 8 books! Fabulous.

After getting back into the swing of things at home and work, I managed to grab some time in my craft room. Here is a card I made yesterday:

I used a die from W Plus 9 – Ironworks Background – then used a stamp set from Clearly Besotted for the flower and leaves in the central circle. I think this stamp set was a freebie with an order, but I’m not exactly sure.

I stamped the flower in Versafine black onyx, then the detail layer in Catherine Pooler ‘Aquatini’. I didn’t stamp the solid base layer of the flower as I think the detail layer is so pretty.

I masked the flower off, then stamped the leaves. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
