This card is one that sort of evolved along the way.
I started off by inking through the Filigraphy Flower stencil with a Clarity stencil brush and a make-up sponge. The colours I used are Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
I then stamped the Filigraphy Foliage stamps on top with the appropriate colour. As there isn't one for the stem I went around the edge with the thin end of my Mowed Lawn Distress Marker.
My original idea was to leave the background white but I thought it needed something else......
......So I masked off the flower with Post-its to work on the background.
I used the A5 Stripes and the large Dotty Wave stencils with Dusty Concord ink for this.
I forgot to take a photo when I was doing it but I found that if you put a heavy book on the Stripes stencil when you're using it it stops the stripes moving.
A couple of the Remountable Line Sentiments and some green........
......and mauve gems finish it off.
