Sweet Plum Fun


The last card class that I taught, I challenged the others to stamp up a master board.  I had run out of white card stock, so stamped mine in espresso ink on a cream card made from recycled elements.

I used the big daisy stamp from Kiwistamping (one of my originals) and a butterfly from Hero Arts - another older stamp, now discontinued.

After cutting the master board into four, I then added the small flower, part of a Layers of Color set that I have, and the birthday sentiment both in Sweet Plum ink by Memento, and coloured the images with chalks.

I ran some fun ric rac across the bottom of the card,


and made a flower from pale mauve card that I had sponged with the ink and then applied WoS to.  
The edges of this panel were sponged, and then it was mounted over some matching plum coloured card, which I doodled around the edges of with a silver pen.

Lovely! I really like the background and the stamps you used on it. The ric rac adds a bit of fun (and beauty) to it and the big flower tops it off! Beautiful!
