Another Bordering on Romance


Whilst I had Bordering on Romance on my desk I made another card.  This time using the smaller flowers to make a patterned panel.  

I stamped them in Whisper White and coloured using my Subtles set of Stampin' Write Markers.  I found that the palest colours looked best as the Crumb Cake makes them a little darker anyway.  Then added Crystal Effects to some of the petals.  Not only does this add shine but texture too as the crystal effects stays raised.  I then added a trim of Bashful Blue punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  This was placed over a mat of Whisper White which had been embossed with the Manhattan Flower folder.  I stamped my sentiment from Petite Pairs in Whisper White and punched out using the 1" Circle Punch.  I added a mat of Bashful Blue punched out with the 1 1/4" Punch

As this also has shine I'm adding it into Less is More which has a something shiny theme. 

Well our back garden has turned into a swimming pool!  And it's still raining.  Oh dear can't see the gardeners getting much done today. 

Anyhoo I hope it's dry with you and look forward to popping round to see your creations.  Happy crafting. x
