Flower Festival, the sunflower and the hydrangea
I don't make that many floral cards, I love them because I love gardens and flowers, but there are many better floral card makers than me. I'm always drawn to cute stuff craft wise,though not so much in my home. Anyway I decided to buy this clear set from penny black called "flower festival".
I stamped in versamark clear ink, then heat embossed using black powder.Because copics smudge with this I used whisper markers to colour the image,the colours look very vibrant so I'm pleased with them.
The sentiment is by craft work cards,the ribbon free with a card mag.The papers are DCWV ,the cafe mediterranean.I used a friscars punch called threading water.
Allsorts : Special Birthday (it's their 3rd Birthday, and there is a blog hop,the secret word is crafting )
My hydrangea card ,follows the above sketch but rotated. The image is from the same pb set. The papers material girl ,g.c.d studio 12x12 papers. The embellishment by craft bitz. The ribbon and sticcker sentiment old stash.
