Re-Worked Card

Sorry for my absence in September, too much going on with golf at the moment so no time for craft. I did make both the grandchildren ‘back to school’ cards, but forgot to photograph them, oops!  I’ve also started my Christmas cards, only half made the 1st 6 so many more to do..
This card is using Sam Poole stamps, I made & blogged this card last month but I’ve added another flower as I thought it was a little out of balance.   I’m a real fan of Sam’s I think she designs great stamps.  I distressed the white cardstock first using various blues & greens, then used a couple of stencils to add interest.  I stamped the flowers directly onto the card then stamped them again onto another piece of cardstock then coloured both before cutting out and layering it on top of the first images.  I covered both of the flower heads in glossy accents to give them a super shine.

  1. A wonderfully inky card. I also like the stamps you used.
