Using those floral backgrounds ...

Hi Everybody,

Do you remember the pretty floral backgrounds that I created with the cover mount gift last week?

I added to the video the Distress Oxide colours that I had used for each background and made one for a card in the film. The colours are listed below

Just to refresh your memory here is the link to the video again from
Creative Stamping 61 Summer
Here are some of the cards that I made with those floral backgrounds.

 I got seven cards from them and I am really pleased with all of them.

I used gemstones and glitter, gold pen and coloured pencils to highlight them and they are all birthday cards
Some of the panels i cut into two separate ones and made two different cards form them.

For this one I used a die to create a fancy edge to the top of it, and coloured the flowers with stencils and added white highlights to the centres

There is a Rainbow Gem in each of the flowers
The other portion to the panel is used here and I dotted these flowers with glue and sprinkled them with glitter.

I added Bakers twine around the stem and a glittery flower to the knot.

Just a few little changes to make them look completely different to each other

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
