Hello again and welcome

It’s time for a new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. This week is Donna’s  “All About Occasions Challenge”. So I hope you will find the time to share your work!

To-day’s card is a little different to most of my recent cards, but a style I still love.

I started by stamping Gina K -‘On My Mind and In My Heart stamp randomly being sure some flowers and leaves ran off the edges, using Adirondack caramel ink.

Then using Distress Inks, I used ink blending to colour the flowers. Darker ink around the edges draws the eyes to the centre. I added some pink tones to the flowers and a touch of green to the leaves.


I added a little colouring using a white coloured pencil to highlight the outline of the flowers.

It was then sprayed lightly with Glimmer Mist – Bubbles to give some wonderful shine and interest.  Sadly, it is difficult to see in the photo but it very pretty IRL.

After trimming the panel, 2 of the frames from Altnew Fine Frames Cover Die in black.

Fine sheer ribbon was tied around the panel before adding it to some black card.  Next it was attached to a cream card.

The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped on a small piece, coloured and added using raised tape.

A small gold embellishment was glued behind the bow.

I hope you like it.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.

Gina K Designs June  2019 Monthly Mix Challenge – create a Vintage Floral Card



Author: momentsofcrafting

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
