Bold Blooms

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the beautiful Happily Ever After stamp set from Clearly Besotted. The set is geared towards weddings but as you can see, you can use the flowers for any occasions. I went with a birthday card as I seem to lack some of these in my stash.

I started off by stamping the flowers on to a piece of cardstock cut using the rectangle ME Femme Frames die. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured it with Copic Markers. As you may notice, I went with bolder colours than I usually do with my colouring. I am loving using black card bases at the moment and I thought the bold colours would make a nice contrast to the black.
The panel was adhered flat to an A2 black card base with ATG. I then stamped the sentiment, from the Tiny Type stamp set, on to a piece of black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and then heat set. The piece was cut in to strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish, I added a few Lucy's Clear Iridescent Jewels.

I seem to have an obsession with white embossing my sentiments on black cardstock at the moment. Sorry about that! :) Thank you so much for visiting me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great week!
