An old favourite

>> Wednesday, 15 June 2011

Hello and thanks for stopping by today. I've been having a good clear out of my crafty stash recently and selling some of the stamps that I don't use. This is then a very good excuse to go and buy some new stamps and I don't feel nearly so guilty! But there are a few stamps that I don't think I will ever part with and this Whiff of Joy stamp is one of them. She is a dream to colour and I love the expression on her face.


I also have a large stash of Wild Orchid Craft flowers which I love but some of them are quite bulky and make putting a card in a regular envelope impossible. So I thought I would play around and have a go at altering some. The larger flower is a gardenia and the two smaller flowers are made from roses. I cut off the wire stems and then carefully peeled the layers of the flowers apart, flattened them out a little and spritzed them with glimmer mist (pearl on the large flower, tattered rose on the smaller ones). I inked the edges on the smaller ones and then spritzed them straight away so the edges bled slightly. The pearl brads are from the Hobby House and I'm quite pleased with the result.

I'm going to enter this card into these challenges:

Stamp with Fun - Pearls and Flowers
Stampavie & More - Butterflies
Totally Gorjuss - Flower Power
Totally Papercrafts - Summer


Have a lovely week!

What an absolutely gorgeous card Sharon...the colour of those papers and the flowers are stunning. As always, you do such beautiful work with your colouring!
P.S. The images you asked me about I googled Precious Moments colouring books and then printed it off!
