Sometimes, I go through the less is more stage.....and it seemed to go that way for both of these cards. I don't know about anyone else but sometimes, I won't buy simple flower rubber stamps cos (short for because ;-))I think, well I could simply paint them if I tried. There is no doubt I need practice but I had a go and this next daffodil was the result.....It is just white cardstock, the painted image matted onto some contrast green and a white organza ribbon.
The next one was another Penny Black stamp but I moved away temporarily from the cutesy animals and used the Eyelett Lace Heart. I painted it with watercolours and then cut it out. As it is so intricate, I decided not to use backing paper, so just put it directly onto pink card stock raised a little so I could put a ribbon round the card inside the heart. I used two ribbons which is something I saw on someone elses blog somewhere. It is a lovely technique when its done properly but I don't know how! So if anyone has any tips on ribbon techniques, do tell?
The hearts were from the "Love" peeloffs range which I think are Stampendous. I really like them, they are very versatile...
Anyway, somehow, I manged to get two cards that look rather english garden, LOL
Have a great Sunday everyone x
