Colourful flowers

Well I can't believe how fast time is going and here I am doing a card for the next Indigo Blu Challenge! This time its all about Flowers. So I had to use the Bloomin' Great set of stamps.

I coloured a piece of card with Pan Pastels and then stamped the 3 flowers in the set over it and cut them out. I cut out a circle of card and stamped one of the sentiments on it.

I cut a square of card and covered it with a mask by Splodge Away and brushed pan pastels over it to create a gentle background as the flowers were so bright. I attached this to an 8 x 8 card and then arranged the flowers and sentiment using foam pads.

I stamped some leaves from the set on to some green stiff paper and cut them out and slotted them in amongst the flowers.

I dotted some dew drops around the leaves. And here is the finished card. I do hope you like it.

Thanks for looking and please leave me a comment if you can!

Happy Crafting.

  13. I really love this card Jane, I have only just discovered your blog and now I can't wait to have a good sit down with a nice cup of tea and have a look right back through all that you have shared here. I have only bought a few Panpastels so far but now I have seen your card, I'm really inspired to get them out and have my first real play with them. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely work here and for giving me the nudge I needed to get crafting again.
