From the Heart (PB Saturday Challenge)

I was thrilled that my card was selected for an Honorable Mention over at Pammie’s Inky Pinkies Challenge! Thank you so much to everyone for selecting my card.

Hello and welcome

It’s time for a reminder for the current challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!  March’s theme  is Anything Goes (Optional – ‘Flowers’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun!

Prize – a $20 voucher!

My card features PB Slapstick stamp – Demure. I love PB stamps as there are such wonderful images!

I decided to do this card a little differently. Instead of colouring the flowers on the card, I coloured them and added them on top of the image.

To start, stamp once on the card front and once on a piece of scrap card.

The flowers were watercoloured with Distress Inks. The second set of flowers were fussy cut and layered over the card front flowers using raised tape to give a 3D look.

Gold ink was added along with splatters.

The panel was then layered before being added to the card front.

The sentiment is from an old set from the Everyday Greetings stamp company.

Please head over to our blog to  check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

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.

    1. Oh they’re so beautiful! Gorgeous colouring too. Thanks for playing at Uniko, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!


  2. I love how you did this Helen, it gives a lovely dimension. And I like the layering of the bases with the gold and I spotted you added gold to the splashes-it is the tiny details like this that I think make a cars so special. Thanks for joining Time Out x


  3. Beautiful CAS, these flowers are so pretty, I understand why you love them. Beautiful colouring. Thanks for joining us at We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge!


  4. Your flowers look fantastic and love how you added the dimension with the flower itself, adds so much interest to the card. Very jealous of your splatter ability, yours is so soft and fine, mine is always big blobs. The touch of gold in the layer and splatter adds a bit of shine and all the embellishment its needs. Always so lovely to see you cards at TIME OUT!


    1. Maybe call it luck, Shona! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Great when they work!!! LOL!! You have certainly made me super happy with your wonderfully kind comments. I love joining in your fun challenges!! It was a fun new idea for a simple image!! thanks so much! Stay safe!! πŸ™‚
