Filigraphy Flower

It's a lovely day here today. I've just been out in my garden admiring it. Mum and Dad have been up to stay for a week and helped me tidy up my garden. It's never looked so good! Now I just have to keep it that way. Unfortunately the only sort of green fingers I have is when I've been messing about with ink! I will do my best though.

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.

Stamps and Stencils Used



  1. Very lovely, Lynne. It would drive me mad cutting out all those masks! Worth it for the result xxx

  2. Lovely as always Lynne, especially like how you overstamp in the same colour - I hadn't thought of that! x
