Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #189- Floral Profusion


Hi today sees the start of the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers. Jackie is hosting this challenge and has chosen the theme of Floral Profusion.

For my card I have used the 'Wild Roses' stamp set from Hobby Art. I stamped the images onto watercolour card with 'London Fog' Memento Ink to create a border. I used Spectrum Aqua Markers in 'Rose Pink', 'Yellow' and 'Peacock Blue' to colour the images. I added some Pearl Mica spray over the top to make the panel sparkle, before cutting out.

The background was made using DoCrafts Crackle Medium and White Acrylic pain. I then ran this through the 'trellis' embossing folder from Couture Creations and added some more Pearl Mica spray over the background. I then highlighted the embossing with a little 'Bundled Sage' Distress Ink.

The background for the sentiment was created the same way, without the embossing folder. I then stamped the sentiment from Hobby Arts 'Scene It Sentiments' stamp set and embossed with Copper. The butterflies are also from the Sentiment stamp set and have been embossed onto vellum.

I finished the card by adding glitter and gems.

I hope you like my card and please check out my fellow DT's blogs as they have some beautiful cards.

Thanks for visiting.

Hobby Art May Monthly Special- Wild Roses


Hello, today I have a home decor project to share with you.

 I have used a metal garden sign from the pound shop as a base, which I painted with DoCrafts acrylic paint. I have also used some gold gilding wax to catch the embossing on the sign and more acrylic paint to paint the message.

The roses are from the Monthly Special 'Wild Roses' stamp set by Hobby Art and have been heat embossed in gold onto vellum. I then used Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to colour them. I cut out and layered the flowers before finishing them off with some gold beads for the centres.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
