Pastel Flowers


Card/Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink
Stamps: Happy Moments
Other: Bashful Blue Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Soft Subtles Watercolour Wonder Crayons
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")

This is one of the cards we made tonight at my stampers ten meeting. The flowers were stamped using Basic Gray ink, having first been stamped off once to soften the grey. Coloured in using the crayons and picking up the colour from the tips of the crayons using either a blender pen, or an aquabrush according to the preference of the member. On this card I have used an aquabrush. The colours are Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery. The tags were made using both sizes of the Tag punches. All of the white card was sponged around the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and a sponge dauber. The white ribbon was threaded through holes punched in the tags, before wrapping onto the card on top of the blue ribbon. Then a short length of ribbon was tied in a knot and stuck on top of the tags using a glue dot. The tags were arranged before popping a foam dimensional behind each one to keep them in place.

We made another card which I'll put up tomorrow.
