Daisies on Kraft

Thank you so much for popping by.

First I'd like to give a very warm welcome to my two new blogland friends Wendy and Pen.  I'm so glad that you have joined me here.

I don't think Wendy has a blog at the moment but I have just  started following Pen who is quite new to blogging and I know she'd love a visit from you.

This card was made with this Woodware framed Daisy stamp which I stamped with a Versamark inkpad  onto a piece of kraft card then heat embossed with black embossing powder.

I coloured it with Pro markers and added highlights with a white gel pen. I mounted the image onto black card and then a white A6 card.

The sentiment is from Inky Doodles and heat embossed onto a piece of parchment paper.

I'd like to enter this card into the following :-
The Snippets Playground Week 210 and
Creative Inspirations Challenge  #342 - Florals

A pretty floral, that looks wonderful with the black embossed outlines, and on the kraft. Love all the matting too. The neutrals look wonderful with the soft shades of the flower colors. I'll pop over to visit Pen, so thanks for sharing the link. Always lovely to make a new friend, and help build a new blog! TFS & Hugs

I love this Woodware Stamp Barb and you have given it a really different look using it with kraft card and black embossing powder, and with the other layers using similar tones it has the look of wood inlay and the greens and browns you have coloured it with look quite muted and blend in beautifully. x
