Circle Flower Card

 

I have just realised I keep making colourful cards on a black background!  I must do something different next time or you will all be bored! I have made this for a challenge over at Artful Times which is 'Spots and Stripes - Circles and Straight Lines.  The background is made using Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean DI's.  The spots in the background are Salty Ocean, Pickled Rasberry and Mown Lawn DI's and are inked through a mask.  The circle flowers and leaves are stamped on white card coloured with the same ink and spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and the background is spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Aqua Lagoon.  The flowers and leaves are from Creative Expressions Button Florals stamp plate, the butterflies are Inky Doodles Floral Fantasy and the sentiment is by Marion Emberson.  The straight lines are the stems which are made from ribbon and I am hoping the rings on the flowers can be seen as stripes even though they are circular, not sure if I can get away with that or not!  The flowers,  butterflies and sentiment are all raised with mounting foam. The ribbon is white seam binding coloured with DI's.  Please pop over to Artful Times to see the other fab entries and Neet and Von's brilliant examples.  Thank you so much for visiting, take care and keep warm if you are still in the grip of the March freeze.  Bye for now, Christine xx
