Floral Delights

Here are a few more sneak peeks of samples I have made for Sheena Douglass, her shows are Monday 21st January 8am, 1pm, and 5pm; Tuesday 22nd January 9am and 4pm; Wednesday 23rd January 8am, 11am, 2pm, and 6pm and Thursday 24th January 8am, 2pm and 5pm. Sheena has a four day deal on Create and Craft using some funky flowers and fabulous sentiments.
 For this card I wanted to give a more feminine feel. I showcased Sheena's images in the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and blended a little peeled paint Distress Ink around the edges. I kept the aperture and embossed with a Damask embossing folder, again colouring the edges with peeled paint ink.
I coloured the flowers with victorian velvet Distress Marker and the leaves with peeled paint, adding dimension to a few of the leaves.
This card was created along the same lines but this time I made the fantastic sentiment the focal point.
I added a few of the fantastic flowers for added dimension, colouring with victorian velvet ink and spritzing with water, adding a coordinated button to the centre of each.
My third card uses greens and creams, again adding a sentiment to the centre and dimensional flowers, adding Stickles to the centre of each flower for that touch of bling. I sanded back the embossed areas to reveal the core colour.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Absolutely gorgeous Tracey. I love those lacy die cuts. They really are lovely flowers to play with aren't they?
Hope you are staying safe in the snow.

Stunning work Tracy each card is made to look so different by a great change in colour. These are great cards.

Such pretty florals: the inky embossed outsides look gorgeous, subtly drawing the eye in to those beautiful lacy die-cut frames.

Love them all, I must get to grips with my distress markers. Will have to watch tomorrows shows on my phone at work and buy those stamps.

Really beautiful cards Tracy, love the flower stamp and also the way you have 'inlaid' those gorgeous die cuts into the gorgeous embossed backgrounds. A x
