My first card uses Leafy Vines, my favourite stamp from the 2013 release.
There's so many possibilities with this stamp. I only used a portion of the image and stamped it in two separate corners of the card. Then I black embossed the birthday greeting from the Fancy Basics set on top of the vines. These sentiments are nice and large so they can take centre stage on a card front.
I have another card using the Leafy Vines. This time I stamped the entire image.
I applied several colours of Distress Inks on the stamp, sprayed it with some Perfect Pearls and stamped onto watercolour paper to achieve an ombre effect.
Next up are two cards showcasing the Tall Flowers stamp.
For both cards I used water colour paints to create the backgrounds, coloured the images with water colour pencils and added glittery highlights with some Stardust Pens.
