Elegant Primula From Chocolate Baroque

Hi there, whats happened to the weather?? We've had beautiful sunshine all week and  Saturday morning arrives and its grey and drizzly. I hope its a bit better where you are, but i'd better not moan as we do need the rain. My card share today features one of the gorgeous new stamps from Elegant Spring Flowers, one of the new releases from Chocolate Baroque. 


I love this delicate primula with the beautiful script background, I  coloured with image with promarkers and added a little glitter to the centre  of the flowers, unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show up too well in the photo.

I've edged the image with pumice stone distress ink and matted on some dark blue card. To create the corners, I used the bottom die from Shapeabilities Fancy Tags 2 and trimmed the top and bottom of the die cut shape and attached them behind the image. The paper is from one of the Guild paper packs that I've hoarded for ages but I had to cut it as I thought it complemented this image beautifully. to finish off I added some blue ribbon and a little bow

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Lollipop Crafts: anything goes
Wags'n'whiskers: Flowers

Thanks for calling by

  1. I can see why you love this stamp Claire, it is delicate and goes so well with that backing paper. I like the corners that you've used on this, and the way you've used them.
