I hope you've had a great weekend.
card is really quite straight-forward, it's just time-consuming because
of the fussy cutting!
Oh, if only this set had some co-ordinating
original plan was to use just one bouquet from the Lots of Lavender Stamp Set, which is available free as a Sale-a-bration gift for a qualifying order of €60/£45.
Once I had the first one ready, I had an idea but I needed two bouquets, so I had to start again and create a second one!
I used Pool Party and Wild Wasabi Marker Pens for colouring, and achieved a little bit of shading by
painting each individual image over once, and then going back and
drawing the brush across half of each petal a couple of times.

To create my card I
started with a card base of Whisper White Cardstock (CS), a layer of
Silver Foil, and a top layer of the silver stripe design from the
Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper (DSP).
This is also available free as a Sale-a-bration gift on a qualifying order of €60/£45.
There was no particular
reason why I did this, but today I decided to adhere these layers
together using Tear & Tape!
It was how I always used to do it, and I'd
developed my own way of doing it so I had success i.e. straight layers,
It was pleasing to know I could still do it that way.
Unfortunately, it's not feasible to do it on videos for two reasons.
Firstly it's more time-consuming than using Tombow, and secondly, I need to get
my head over my work to make sure I get it lined up properly before
adhering the layers that my head would be fully under the camera - not a

it using Silver Embossing Powder.
I adhered it about an inch up from the
bottom of the DSP, and in the centre.
As I was nearing the end
of my sheet of Regular Dimensionals, I used some of the outside edges.
can imagine it was a totally different ball game putting Mini
Dimensionals on the back of the two bouquets!
I managed four complete
Minis and then I had to cut lots of different sized small pieces for as
many places as possible.
To finish the front of the card I painted both
bows using the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

To decorate it, I used Basic Black Archival Ink, and stamped the small flower image in the Lots of Lavender Stamp Set.
coloured it in using Soft Sky, Pool Party and Wild Wasabi Marker Pens.
I said at the beginning, this a simple card but time-consuming because
of the fussy cutting.
If you'd like to CASE this, but are put off
because of the fussy cutting, see what stamp sets you have that has a
suitable flower you could use but which has a co-ordinating die!
I hope you've enjoyed today's project, and I hope you have a good day. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
