Lavender Hanging Basket

Hello Crafty Friends

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the Hanging Basket Stamp from the Decoupage stamp Range from Imagination Crafts.


Matt a piece of black card onto a 6"x6" base card, then matt a piece of gold card onto the black, leaving a small borderof black card showing.  

Take a piece of lilac card and using the ivy background stencil, emboss by putting through the Grand Calibur or similar machine.   Matt this onto the gold card leaving a small border of gold showing.

Cut out and emboss the two flourishes,  one in black and one in gold.   Glue these to the centre of the lavender card.

Take some white card, colour with distress inks and using a black inkpad, stamp out the main image. 
Stamp out the image a further five times using a Versamark pad and heat emboss using black embossing powder.

Paint the images with mica powders mixed with water and cut out, then 3d them onto the main image using silicone glue.

Matt the whole image onto some gold then black shiny card, each time leaving a tiny border showing.   Matt this on top of the flourishes using sticky foam pads.   
Cut out and colour three of the tiny flowers and glue to the bottom right of the base card.

Cut out and emboss the butterfly and colour with the mica powders.   
Glue to the gold flourish.   Well that's it, card finished.         

Happy crafting.   
I'll be back soon with another card.
