It's been a while since my last project, so busy making cakes and getting my daughter ready to go back to uni. I thought I had better get on with my design for the Lavinia challenge which is called add a flower. When I saw this honeysuckle stamp I had to have it, so delicate and pretty. To start take a piece of smooth white card and stamp the honeysuckle three times joining it together to make one large plant. I then placed the Moroccan mask by That Special Touch over the top and inked through with peach bellini and shell pink Adirondacks. I left the card white around the flowers. Next I coloured in the flowers with pink and orange Prismacolor pencils and blended with Sansador to give a soft finish, then coloured the leaves in green the same way. Ink up the miniature flowers stamp in peach bellini and stamp randomly around the honeysuckle.To make the flowers stand out more I covered them with glossy accents to give a lovely shine. I made the flower using Spellbinders Carnation Creations. I cut two layers from white card and coloured them with the Adirondack inks then glued them together slightly offset. The leaves are in the same die set, I used two leaves and cut them in half. I made a little tag and wrote the word flowers free hand and also out lined the tag. I found a pink button in my stash and threaded some twine through the holes then glued it in the centre of the flower. To finish attach the tag, leaves and flower in the top right hand corner. Quite a straight forward card this time hope you like it.
Bye for now.
