Sketched Happiness

Today I am showcasing my newly released A6 Stamp, Sketched Happiness #177 from AALLandCreate. All the new products are available from our Stockists listed HERE.
There is something about red in a design, I love how it pops agains an inky or painted backdrop. Here I have created a brayered background, adding lots of layers of paint to give depth to the background.
A touch of stencilling in the background adds further layres of interest along with some delicate splatters of white paint.
I stamped the flowers onto a red painted background, cut them out and then added them to my card, adding a couple of stitched threads to act as stems.

I cut out two pots and added the sentiment 'Happiness' which I stapled into place. I added two gold beads to the centre of my flowers for added interest and dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

I absolutely adore this Tracy you have teamed up those colours with perfection. This is yet again another set that will become a go to selection, I could imagine having a batch making day creating flowers in many many colours. Now wouldn't that be a fabulous play day.
I always think layered flowers show so much more strength on DL shaped cards.
Thank you for sharing this magnificent design.
Hugs Tracey xx
