Floral "Thank You"

Hi Everybody,

A pretty card with a stencilled background created with the Spring Summer Stamp &
Die Set from Card Making Magic

The flowers, leaves and the butterfly have all been coloured with Copics and pearls added to the centres for decoration

The background was inked lightly with Distress Oxides in Abandoned Coral and then the same shade brushed through the stencil a little heavier.

I have used the brushes that I bought from Aldi last year and I have been informed that they are back in stock at present.

Just in case you can't get to an Aldi supermarket I have added in the link at the bottom to get Ink Dusters which work exactly the same ... they just cost more !!

The card and box die set that I have used is the NEW 6x6 and that now comes complete with the Trellis panel added. But if you bought your set when they first came out you can get other Trellis patterns to fit and they will also work with this one too.

So lots of choice for you to play with

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
