Large Flower

Another of the stamps that arrived just before I left was Hero Arts Large Flower cling stamp.... I have made a couple of card now using it - my first one is CASE'd from this one by Kristina Werner.
For someone special
I changed the colours and the sentiment, added some ribbon.  It is for someone very special who shall at this point remain nameless..... but once she has the card, I will reveal....

I like the design so much that I decided to do another one.... this time based on the Embellish Magazine colour scheme.
Big Flower joy
I stamped the flowers in grey ink and clear embossed, then used yellow pencil to colour in the bits of the petals.  I added a gem I coloured with a Copic for the centre and then the sentiment stamped onto grey card.  The lot was then matted onto a white card base.  

Today I received my parcel from Simon Says stamping... boy are they great.  10 days from the USA and this time there was a large wooden background stamp and still only $13US for postage.  So three new stamps to play with over the weekend... all Hero Arts.  - the Ledger cling, Lace background and Starry night cling.  Looking forward to getting them inky.   

Well that's all from me for now.... Off to tidy up the craft table and get organised for the weekend's stamping.

Ciao for now
