………………..bring promise of merry sunshine.
Well, that’s what Gilbert and Sullivan would have us believe.
As I was making my card for the Daring Cardmakers
Little Extra this week I couldn't help but sing along to this well know song from the Mikado and reflect on the fact that the 21st of March was officially the first day of Spring and it’s snowing outside.
That’s the great British weather for you!
Anyway, this was the dare:-
We would like you to create a card with flowers.
Simple? Aww but hold on…there’s a little twist because we don’t want to make it too easy for you.
We want your cards to have flowers on but we don’t want to see any Prima’s or shop brought blooms. The idea of this dare is for you create your flowers yourself so lets see what you can come up with.
Here's my card.
The basis of my card is cream card stock that has been covered with distress ink and stamped over the top with my Penny Black Letter Background stamp.
The flower was cut using the Sizzix Flower Parts Set 2 and a Woodware Heart punch using three of the papers from the Cherryarte Classic Coffee collection. The petals were highlighted with a Gold marker pen and some Diamond Glaze and the card finished off with some ribbon and brads from my ever growing stash.
