I created a couple of bouquets of flowers using MFTs Painted Prints stamp set and dies. I stamped the images with Altenew inks and positioned them onto a white panel stenciled with a brick wall stencil and Grit Paste. It's hard to see in the photo, but it has a lovely bumpy, grainy texture - just like a brick wall! You can see a close-up down below.
The sentiment was white embossed onto black and I have to confess to cutting apart the sentiment as it was all one stamp, but I wanted a white "congratulations" and a black-framed "and best wishes" so I cut apart the stamp. It was a really tight fit and I actually nicked the bottom part at one point, so had to fix the stamped image with a black marker. You can't tell in the finished product, so it's all good!
I filmed the making of this card so you can watch the video below, or over on YouTube.
Thanks for visiting. The design team have a beautiful selection of cards so I hope you'll check them out.
I'm linking this up to The Flower Challenge and chose the previous challenge from November 2016 for an Occasion card, as well as Work It Wednesday's Summer theme.
