Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light

Hi everyone, I am back today with a card using my stamps from AALLandCreate. The new releases are all available from our list of stockists HERE. Alternatively you can find them direct from the AALLandCreate BOUTIQUE, simply scroll down.
This time around I have created an accordion card using my quirky flower stamps. I created the accordion from white card and then cut panels to fit.
I applied Dina Wakley's Cheddar Acrylic Paint to each panel, applying the paint with a piece of Cut'n' Dry Foam. I dried this layer with my heat tool. I then applied a layer of Fuchsia Acrylic Paint to some scrap card and then lightly pressed the card onto the background to just add highlights of the colour. I then brayered Turquoise paint very lightly over the background on each panel. I love this sentiment on my quirky stamp set.
I stamped my quirky flowers onto each panel and then I coloured scrap pieces of card with Acrylic Paint and then stamped my quirky flower heads onto the card and then cut them out and added to each panel.
A few delicate splatters of white Posca Paint Pen lift the design.
I also added some paint circles to each panel along with some doodles around the outside edges of the panels.
I added some background stamping using my doodle background stamp.
I love how all the layers are visible and add so much texture to the background.
 I love making accordion cards and these quirky flower stamps work beautifully.

This is my stamp set used this time around.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x x

So pretty! I always have to chuckle when I read that your used Cheddar paint. I love cheese so maybe that's my problem ;) But seriously. That cheddar color is bright and looks great on all your backgrounds. This has got to be one of my favorite stamp sets of yours.

Tracy, I really do love how you stamp and then add the stamped image atop of that- It really gives such depth and interest to your flowers! And those white circles and specks have brought the whole card together beautifully! You are such a talent my dear!
Sending Easter wishes for you and your loved ones!
