Today's card is made with one of the "new to me" Whiff of Joy stamps that I purchased from ebay the other day. I think it is called Shopping Willow. I love my Tilda stamps but I think the Willow designs are great for more "grown up" designs.
I have coloured the image with pro markers and used papers by My Mind's Eye and Pink Petticoat. The stitching is a bit wonky but I guess that adds to the hand made feel! I have used some prima flowers to make the focal flower - I misted them with water, scrunched them up then let them dry. They dried in the scrunched up shape and I think they look more like how a real flower bud opens. I'll definitely use that trick again! The rest of the flowers are old ones from my stash, from when I did my floristry qualifications. I used to use them on wedding "things".
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter - Flowers for Mum
Little Claire's - Flowers
Friday Sketchers - I used their sketch
Gingerloft - Flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
That's it for today - I'm off to practise some crochet. I am just teaching myself and will let you know how I get on with it!
Thanks for stopping by!
