Apricot Flowers


Ingredients:


Card/Paper: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Whisper White card.
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery.
Stamps: Garden Silhouettes, Sincere Salutations.
Other: 5/8" Certainly Celery gross grain ribbon, Crystal Stickers pearls, Three For You flower punch.

Method:

This card was inspired by Monica's card here.

Inked up the flower branch from Garden Silhouettes set with markers so that I could do the flowers and leaves in different colours. Stamped the image twice, re-inking inbetween. Then cleaned the stamp, re-inked, and stamped a little here and there with just Certainly Celery. Sponged around the edges - the sponging on one corner under the ribbon was definitely an embellishment opportunity! Matted onto the apricot card, and tied on the ribbon. Stamped the feathery stem onto the background card, and added the greeting - both using the Stampamajig. Matted onto apricot card, and then fixed all onto a pre-scored card base 13.5cm square. Finished with some punched flowers, shaped as per my little plaid flowers, with a little pearl in the centre.
