I had intended being back here sooner, but life has been crazy busy, and I have had a houseful of guests for three days. Not that I am complaining, and the gardens are looking good too!
I made this card for a swap in a group I belong to, and the theme for this month was 'floral'.
The recipient is a wonderful cardmaker, and has an awesome CAS style, so I kept my card very CAS.
The image is a Kiwistamping one, coloured with watercolour paints. The edges of the panel were coloured with Cottage Ivy ink, and it was mounted over an embossed panel
The sentiment, also from Kiwistamping, a local (N.Z.) company whose website is down, was heat embossed using Renaissance Red ep. The edges of the embossed and stamped panels, and the card base, were all edged with Poppy Red ink.
I was running out of inspiration, and needed a second card for a birthday in a hurry, so duplicated the image and layout, changing the colour of the flowers, and painting them with mica paints
And using a vertical birthday greeting from Montarga Stamps (also a N.Z.company)
I enjoyed making both of these cards, and both were well received.
