Sewing Florals

Welcome

Just a quick post this time - and a card that I made recently that I really love!!

I taught this in the class I take this month, using the techniques of framing and masking


It is a simple but very feminine card, using two images from the Chocolate Baroque set
Floral Mannequins, chalks to colour and a few clear rhinestones and some silver cord.


The central image was stamped, and the frame drawn, before the corners were masked and the flowers stamped.


I finished the inside by cutting a lighter weight piece of card a wee bit smaller than the base, edging it with violet ink, and stamping the two flowers off the edge of the corners.
