Hi Craft addicts!
Today's card is one that has pleased me a lot making it - I have used a hand stamped topper along with some brightly coloured paper and 6in flower shaped card.
How I made this card:-
- I first of all took one of the "Leaves" from the "Flamingo Party" For the Love of Stamps collection and stamped it on each of the petals using "Onyx black" Memento ink pad - making sure that they were all facing the right way.
- I then cut out the two panels (one in "Red & White dots" and the other in "Yellow" cardstock using a "Tattered Lace Torn Edged circle" and the other in a "straight edged circle).
- Using the "Hearts" DoCrafts (Xcut) embossing folder, I embossed the yellow circle to give it some dimension.
- I then stamped the surface using one of the flower stamps and then coloured them in using "Red" and "Orange" alcohol markers.
- I stuck both of the background panels together with CS PVA glue and then on to the flower card.
- I also stamped a "Picot edged" circle with a smaller "Flamingo" and coloured it using some "Pink" alcohol markers and added the "Party Animal" sentiment just above it.
- Finally, I added some shadow to under the bird and some faux stitching to the border of it using a Fineliner pen.
And there you are - a simple but stylish card that has been made using just some some dies, some stamps from Hunkydory and coloured with alcohol markers.
