Sweet pea stamps

I've just got some of the gorgeous Sweet Pea stamps from Crafts and Me, they are fab and I'm already counting down til payday so I can get some more lol. Here's my first card using them

The image is coloured with promarkers on pearlescent card, the background to the images is also made with promarkers, they seem to blend really well on this type of card. I've matted the image on some copper mirri silk card and then onto a layer of card coloured with alcohol inks (polished stone technique - great tutorial here at Gingersnaps Creations) and some more copper mirri. The backing paper is made using another technique from Sharon at Gingersnaps - the bubblewrap backgrounds tutorial is here. I stamped the paper with the bubblewrap using green and orange acrylic paint, it was a bit too bright so I oversprayed it with Ancient Copper cosmic shimmer mist and then stamped and embossed flourishes over the top. I stamped the sentiment directly on to the backing paper and added a paper rose from floradoodles which was sprayed with lime and copper cosmic shimmer mists to finish the card off.

This card is for the following challenges:
Creatalicious challenge - wings and flowers
Passion for promarkers - Promarker background
Tanda Teaser - Outside the box

Thanks for looking
