I love the versatility of Stampin' Up!'s stamp sets. There are so many possibilities that I might never exhaust them all. A set I reach for time and time again is 5th Avenue Floral. It's wonderful for many different techniques and styles and I don't think I'll ever get tired of using it.
This card is one of my most favourite. I made it shortly after becoming a Demonstrator when I was learning to colour with chalk pastels. I loved the result so much that I've kept the card .. and may never part with it hehe, although my poor photography skills are quite evident in the photo :) Of course I could always make another one.
I was inspired by this card by the very talented Leslie Miller. I wanted to try her colouring technique, and cased the design of her card, using all Stampin' Up! products.
The flowers are popped up with dimensionals, and I love the 3D effect they give.
From memory, I think the colours I used were Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral and Regal Rose, and I used a blender pen with Bravo Burgundy chalk to colour the stamens. I also decorated the inside, which I don't always do, but the card needed the stability as the front is rather heavy with all those layers.
Thanks for dropping in. I'd love to hear what you think.
