this weeks theme over at TKJ is flowers.
for my card i started with kraft cardstock (purchased at thekraftoutlet ,link on my side bar)
i took a stem stamp ( dont know who made this one) and stamped directly onto the cardstock with colorbox archival dye (tree frog) then outlined with a pen and then colored in a little with TH distress ink ( peeled paint). stamped some dragonflies ( inkadinkadoo i think) in TH distress ink( victorian velvet) the outlined with a pen again and added distress stickles ( victorian velvet)
for the flowers, i cut them using my cricut and a scallop circle using a glassine bag ( also purchased from TKO).i colored them with TH distress stains ( spun sugar and wild honey and victorian velvet)
added a brad to hold them together and adhered them to the stems with a glue dot. ( that i also made using aleens tac~ it over and over). i added some dirt shading and sky shading using Th distress inks. i also added victorian velvet shimmer that i made myself.
thanks so much for checking this one out your comments warm my heart :) have a great rest of day xxxshelly
