I have used a very beautiful floral stamp from Hobby Art and is the main feature of this card.
I started by stamping in black onto a card which I had covered with various shades of acrylic paint. I extended the stamp with a fine black pen and coloured the image in with watercolour pencils, before matting onto a paler green cardstock.
For the background I used a co-ordinating piece of patterned paper which I ran through an embossing folder and highlighted the embossing with a green inkpad. The same inkpad was used to edge all of the card pieces to define each of the layers.
I cut a piece of lattice using a Spellbinders die out of pale yellow card.
The crochet lace I made using white cotton thread and ironed with starch to the right size using pins.
The white in the crochet lace highlights the white colouring in the floral stamp.
A simple and small stamp but a very big effect!
All for now.
