I have confessed in the past to not being a 'card maker' or enjoying making cards, but have to admit to thoroughly enjoying the process of this one, created for Mixed Media Place. Of course Spring is in the air in the Northern hemisphere, so this is a card to celebrate Spring, but at the same time a 'cheer me up' card as we, in Australia are about to start Winter and, also, I have just completed a 'gloomy' journal page so needed to work with colour and flowers and create something "pretty".
The background is Distress Ink that has been water misted and a Finnabair Doily stamp that has been embossed. In fact the front of the card has a total of 5 different Finnabair stamps on it.
Some small blossoms, also coloured with Distress Ink and other textural elements.
Inside is more Distress Ink, a little bird cut from a paper serviette and that beautiful doily stamp again.
See HERE for complete list of materials used.
All inks and stamps are available from Mixed Media Place
