More Wildflowers

Wildflower Meadows is such a gorgeous stamp and the matching embossing folder takes cards to the next level for me. I know there is so much more I can do with this set, and need lots of happy crafty time to play with it and see what else it can do. Tonight I coloured the image with my Stampin' Write markers and then gave it a a light mist of water. It's so pretty! I also cut out the little hummingbird and popped him up over his original flat image. Doesn't his mix of colours make him look sweet? I gave him a tiny bit of shine with some shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol. I sponged around the first layer with Pumpkin Pie and around the card base in Crumb Cake.



 There are pearls in the middle of all the open flowers.

For this card I used Wisteria Wonder, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake inks. The designer series paper is from a Color Collection Designer Series Paper Pack in Pumpkin Pie.

You can't see it very well in the photo but the background card is stamped with Flowering Flourishes in Crumb Cake. The flourishes  continue onto the back of the card too.


Inside I embossed my sentiment (from God's Blessings) in white embossing powder:


This card turned out to be one of those special ones.

Now I need to make some more for some very special people in my life. My friends are such a blessing to me. I can make their flowers in all their favourite colours! Yeah!

I hope none of them have seen this card now! Lol!

I have a card for Craft Class tomorrow that will use just a  piece of the Wildflower Meadow stamped image, so stay tuned to see that soon.

Thank you for the tips on your colouring of the image Susan. I am looking forward to ordering this bundle for myself really soon.
