Inspired by Nature

This is a card I made for one of the girls in my upline who recently had a birthday. I decided to use the beautiful Inspired by Nature stamp set. I started off by colouring the image with tangerine tango, rose red and always artichoke. I used a sponge dauber to blend the colours on the flowers so there wasn't such a line between them. I then stamped the image onto whisper white cardstock. After I had stamped the main image I stamped the grass in the background using the same always artichoke ink, which I stamped off first, so it was a more subtle colour.

I made the card base out of tangerine tango cardstock and then stamped the En Francais stamp onto the rose red cardstock with versamark ink. I matted everything with more white cardstock and then tied a piece of the tangerine tango ribbon around the bottom.

The card looked ok but I thought it needed a little something extra on it, so I coloured in the top of the flowers with my two way glue pen and sprinkled some dazzling diamonds over the top to give it a little bling.

This stamp set is so easy and quick to use as there is no colouring in and it takes up just about the whole card front.

I will have an easter card to share with you next time.

Keep on creating.

xx Nicky
