The Flower Challenge #79 Focus on Background Stamping


Its time for the latest challenge at The Flower Challenge Blog

Although this is a Christmas background stamp I have coloured with purples and pinks and made it
a Happy Birthday card. I stamped and heat embossed in gold on vellum.

I didn't realised how dark this photo looked until I added it here so have made it a bit bigger for you.
I coloured the flowers with Zig watercolour brushes and a little bit of Nuvo Glitter brush.
To finish it off I added lots of smooth gold gems and sparkly clear gems.

I love how this turned out and hope you do to.

Now its time to go see what the Design Team have been up to and our Guest Designer, Ishani who has designed a wonderful card. If you have time check out her amazing cards on her website or Instagram. I have watched Ishani since she first came on the cardmaking scene doing cards with Quill art and have watcher her amazing talent flourish and grow. A account worth following.

I didn't pick that it was a Christmas background until you said. Doesn't it make such a difference and stretch your stamps to colour it a different colour? Love it Aileen!

I didn't realize that the image is from a Christmas stamp until I read it! It looks so pretty, especially I love the two toned flowers!

Your like to challenge #84 isn't working, Aileen. It sent me here and when I search your archive I still find this post.
