Flower Card – CAS #11

Hi everyone.

This week’s Addicted to CAS challenge code word is “Flower” .

To see full details of the challenge, the wonderful inspirational pieces by the fabulous DT and to join in the fun please click on the link above.

Here is my DT piece for this weeks challenge.  Due to the design of the stamp I have used, I thought I would go for a long thin card.

DSC_0019aI have stamped onto white card stock (trimmed to size)  using blue archival ink and coloured the image using a damp paint brush and some ink from my felt pens.  I edged the white card with a gold pen and added diamond glaze over the flower.  It did crack a bit but no need to worry.   I then stamped the With Love sentiment onto a piece of scrap card and again edged it with gold pen.


I think the cracks might have happened because the ink wasn’t dry when I added it…that and I dropped it and flexed the card!! lol!

Thats all from me today.
Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting.

Best Wishes Florence x

    Wow … love that flower. Great colors and the diamond glaze gives it shine and dimension. Love the gold edging on both the main card panel and sentiment. Perfect CAS card! Loll xx

    An absolutely beautiful card Florence. It’s so striking. What a shame about the cracking……have you tried heating it gently with a heat gun? It might melt it just enough that it covers the crack over……worth a go perhaps?

      Hi Karen. Thank you for the idea. If it happens again I will try this. Unfortunately I had attached this with tape which doesn’t like being heated. Been there before!! lol!
      Hugs, Florence xx
