The Stamp Man Challenge #18 - Mother's Day Floral theme

Today the Stamp Man has a new challenge for you and Vix is hostess this week and her theme is floral and Mother's Day. So I hope you will come over and join us for this one. There is a £10 gift voucher to spend in  The Stamp Man store for the winner, so it's well worth a try.

I have used Craft UK 'Rose' Flower Collection for this card. The Stamp Man sell this set and others which are at a fabulously reduced price of only £5.00, which is a 50% reduction. Go take a look HERE.

The image was stamped on a lightly coloured background made with DIs and then I watercoloured  the image to make it stand out more. I just love these soft, delicate colours.

I made a TH rose with the patterned paper stuck onto grungepaper, cut the petal shapes and ran them through the embossing folder. Once made up I added some glitter on the edges of the petals and added some lace behind it, also coloured with DIs.

At this point Maddie was around and she helped me re-design the layout, as I wasn't happy with it. This is totally different to the way I had it, but much nicer.

Supplies used - many of which can be found at The Stamp Man on-line shop
DIs - spun sugar, victorian velvet, scattered straw, frayed burlap, old paper
Glamour Dust
Go Kreate Frilly Square die
TH Tattered Florals die
TH Damask texture fade embossing folder
Miscellaneous papers
An old net curtain
Sentiment - my own and made in PE
MS butterfly

I do hope to see you in the list of entrants, my comments all end with an 8, so if you are one of those I will be there to see what you have made.

Have a fabulous weekend.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
