Vintage Botanical

I raided my box of Design Paper off-cuts and used my fave new stamps and dies to create this card. I don't use patterned paper much these days, so  I really enjoyed making this card.

I stamped the flowers on the white card and die-cut after colouring with Zigs.  I stamped the jar on Vellum, clear embossed and coloured the back with Copic Markers. I cut a slit in the top of the jar to thread the flowers through.  Next I die cut scraps and inked the edges with Walnut Stain. I've run out of Kraft card-stock, so I used Tea Dye Distress Ink to colour the base card. The blue card is coloured with Tumbled Glass DO.  To finish,  I die cut the 'twine', coloured and added the pearl. 

Stamps: Tim Holtz Flower Jar; Inspired by Stamping Birthday Sentiments
Dies: Tim Holtz Flower Jar; MFT frame, Stamplorations Stitched Rectangle

  2. Jenny, You certainly were very creative when making this gorgeous card. So many ways to make due the things that you had. I love the artsy look to the flowers and a great way to make that vase.
