Today I wanted to make a kind of a western card, with kraft paper and with flowers and with a ribbon! Why not, you have to get out of your comfort zone once in a while!
To give this card some real pop I used a piece of paper called Lime Mica Metallic by Paper Temptress
My choice of stamps was Lace flowers by Garaciellie Designs
I printed my flower on the card face base layer, I changed the flower to be a soft shade of brown to create a stamped background image
Using colored pencil on craft gives you a super rich pigment dense layer of color.
Fussy cut and ready for coloring
Here is my westerny, kraft and flower card:
This beautiful set is proving to be very versatile. It is important to me to not just have beautiful stamps but to be able to use them over and over again. Lace flowers is proving to be a 'go to set'!
