Floral Backgrounds

Hi there, hope it's as sunny with you as it is here today. First of all apologises for lack of posts, obviously I must try harder, but a big thank you for popping in today.

My first card is made with the really beautiful Harlequin Bouquet, which I have stamped and watercoloured with brush markers. I cut the design with an oval die and edged with Distress inks and Crystal Stickles. I mounted the oval onto a stamped background that I created with the Harlequin Fragment and Distress inks.

This card has been stamped with the Flora Musica cling stamp and then water coloured with brush markers. As before I have cut with an oval die, edged with Distress ink and applied Crystal Stickles to the outer edge. I then mounted it onto the base card that I had stencilled with a musical note Tando Creative Mask.

And last but not least the Crackling Rose which I made in a similar way to the previous two. I added extra crackles around the base card using the cracked egg stamp from the clear Natural Eggs set.

Enjoy the sunshine!
