Yet another Sweet Pea!


OK, I did a card yesterday for the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge and I mentioned I wasn't going to use pink but somehow that's how it turned out. Today I decided to do another one and this time used blue as the predominant colour. I put some of my blue silkies onto my craft mat and mixed a bit of water, I put this onto some paper and then used another blue and layered this on top. Once both these colours had made the paper wet enough I scrunched it up, dried it slightly and then laid it out and rubbed a little of the darker colour over the top.

I cut the frame behind the image out on the Cricut and layered this onto a piece of glossy card that I used the silkies on again but slightly different and although it doesn't really show in the picture it has a slight criss cross effect. The image is mostly done in silkies but I have also used a few promarkers, to finish the whole thing off I cut a flourish and then made a flower. The flower is made with black paper soaked with diluted silkies and screwed up, it has five layers and these are glued together and finished with a pearl.

I hope you like this one.
