Chocolate Baroque Poppy and Sheena Douglass Stamps

Poppy Stamp
This  is one ( of many! ) of my favourite floral stamps. From a set from Chocolate Baroque. Used JellyRoll and Distress pens to colour the flower and Butterfly. Decided to leave it at that as the stamp does the work for you, or so I think. Just used a pretty paper to mount and that was it!
Floral Card

The second card for today was and embossed and distressed background with a gilding wax to highlight. Used a Spellbinders Die for the flowers to sit on..Stamped the flowers and decoupaged them after colouring with Distress Inks and Glossy Accents. Decoupaged a butterfly and assembled card finishing with ribbon and a bow. Job done!

Sweet Poppy Stencils - the Poppy Stencil

Sweet Poppy
How I love the new stencils from Sweet Poppy Stencils!!
Cut a fancy rectangle using a Spellbinders Die and Coloured the Frame using Distress Inks.Used a pattern paper from stock to cover the "hole" and leave a border to mount later. 
Used Pans round the edge of the rectangle after the Pearlescent Paste had dried overnight  and then Perfect Pearls and Promarkers to colour the flowers and foliage
  Added a ribbon twist and then  put the rectangle back into the "hole" so that the patterned paper just shows through the holes in the rectangle and then mounted onto a card base to finish.
