Ornate Flowers

I am back from a nice day of crafting with my up-line Michelle Last.  If you would like to see what we made then pop over to Rose's blog, you will find the link on my side-bar.  Rose finished her project, but I'm afraid I'm still working on mine!

I really enjoyed making those lovely flowers, so this morning I sat down and worked out how to make them so that they still looked nice but dried faster.  I stamped the little flower from Cottage Garden with Blushing Bride ink and "rock & rolled" it around the edges with Soft Suede ink, then cut it out, put it on the card and then using the Crystal Effects like a pen, I scribbled the Crystal Effects on.  This way I got a very shallow but still lovely effect that dried quicker.

With my renewed Crysal Effects enthusiasm, I then drew over the Ornate Flower, which I'd stamped onto a piece of dictionary paper, that I'd given a wash with white acrylic paint and Blushing Bride re-inker to soften the words.

I am pleased with the finished card and it will be one we make in this months classes.

Hope you like it.

Happy crafting.
