Lace and flowers

I have been very lax about posting… sometimes my computer doesn’t want to cooperate… so will try to catch up a bit!!

This week at my weekly stamp class we used some neutral colors to create a eclectic type card.I cased the card from another stamper, unfortunately she did not have her blog or watermark on her image. Mine turned out a bit different, used different colors and more ink!!

I combined Soft suede, black, and  some of my “saved”  white naturals cardstock which I like to use for water coloring, some satin and lace ribbon , depending on card, some of the fine gold thread, some sequins, and of course INK!!  We water colored a swatch of color in the middle of the card, then stamped some grunge spots.

After that I stamped and fussy cut the Daisy from Grateful Bunch stamp set. I also used the leaves from the Botanical thinlits, and the GOLD doily that is retiring this month!! Threw in a paper doily too. Saying is from Greateful Bunch set also.
