With love......

And a rose....stamped along with some leaves from an Altenew set I love.

Using a favourite technique I stamped ink pads onto a glass surface and mixed them myself with a little water to get the shades I wanted and then painted the ink onto the stamp..

I cut the stamped piece in 2 and added an overlay of vellum as I wanted a soft gentle look, stitching the vellum  onto the base cards with my sewing machine, a simple die cut love sentiment coloured with my gold leafing pen finished it off. I hope you like it....

The challenge I have entered this card for is.......Less is More

Delphiniums.... of  only a couple of stencils I own, and as the garden is looking so beautiful with delphiniums, poppies, daisies and lots more, it was quite easy to come up with an idea, several messy cards later (I suspect we've  all been there haha)!

I decided my stencil strip needed a base layer so just painted a strip of cardstock to match the stencilling, which I did with with my stamp pads blended on a piece of glass with a bit of water added. The poppy was stamped separately and a bit of fussy cutting later was added on top of the background. I had a wishing sentiment ready however the card looked too busy with the sentiment so I left it out......Adding to two challenges here at LiM and here at aaacards

That's  the colour challenge this week over at my favourite challenge blog LiM and as it's  a friends birthday this week I thought I would take the opportunity to say Wishing a happy birthday, using some Kraft card, a Wishing stamp and some flowers stamped and embossed in gold and watercoloured with ink from a couple of new inkpads I have just bought in lovely 'sunset shades!'  I then cut out the flowers and arranged them behind the banner, a couple of sequins to finish and here is my card.
