Cherished Florals

Last week the Inklings had a cyberstamp. I was a bit slow with completing the challenges, and with my net troubles I'm only just getting them uploaded now! This one was my response to challenge 1. It was a scrapping sketch challenge, but well all know I don't scrap wink (well, I didn't have any photos on hand, the print needs new ink etc etc...) but I thought it'd make a nice card. I've used the En Francais and Floral backgrounds as well as a few stamps from Baroque Motifs (yes, that one is a new favourite!), lots of VersaMark, some Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive and Whisper White ink (I'm falling back in love with that). Cardstock is Confetti White, Pale Plum and Old Olive. The card is covered in stamped images so I decided to have a non-stamped focal point and pulled out the Pretties kit again. The smaller flower has been died with a few drops of Purely Pomegranate ink, the large one left white and in the centre is a medium lilac circle rhinestone brad. If I had my time over the Old Olive piece would be a little lower, but it's a minor quibble... I really enjoyed making this card because I forced myself not to think about it too much, just get on with the stamping!

This is so lovely, i adore the layering effect of stamps and backgrounds...never think to put pale plum with olive.
