Just Peachy (3 Challenges)


Papertake - Sketch

Creative Card Crew (3) - Warm Colours

Secret Crafter (25) - Stitching

What a great sketch to follow, I really enjoyed doing this one and will use it again. I have used one of Jak Heath's 'Build A Blossom' again for this card. I really love these flowers, they look impressive but are very easy to do. The flower started off white but I coloured it by stippling it using versamark inkpads until I got the colour I wanted. The sentiment was done by masking the stamp which I have never tried before, thanks Jeanette for telling me how. I have done faux stitching around the edge of the card and also in the middle. All in all I am really pleased with how this one turned out.
