I've got a trio of flower cards to share with you today. I know... I'm not usually much of a card-maker, but when I saw the new Calico Craft Parts Garden Flower Shapes and Wildflower Shapes, I just wanted to put them centre-stage, and these cards are the result.
They come in a rich shade of burnished brown, and of course you can paint, stamp, texturise and crackle them to your heart's delight, but this time I didn't do any of that! (This is the Poppy.)
... over a layer of tree bark, providing lots of lovely natural texture...
... over distressed watercolour paper panels, and finally over kraft card which I've stamped with the Tiny Words and inked with Gathered Twigs.
For each card, I selected a ChitChat sticker, making my main word echo the stamping and the book page text.
Inside each card I added another column of Tiny Words for extra interest.
And of course there's lots of splatter everywhere... that's the only paint applied to the flowers - quite randomly of course.
The design is very simple, they take very little time to make, but with the Calico Craft Parts Wildflowers as the centrepieces, I think they make for rather lovely cards for a special occasion. I hope you like them, and I'll see you again soon.
