Snowdrop Easel Card

Hi there, can you tell I love snowdrops lol. I fell in love with this beautiful stamp which you can find on one of the stunning new stamp sheets available this month at Chocolate Baroque. This stamp is from the stamp sheet, Elegant Spring Flowers

This was a simple card to make, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with promarkers adding very pale dots in the background.  The image was die cut with nesties Labels 4 and I used Bundled Sage distress ink around the edges. I accented the flowers with some glossy accents but you can't see that too well in the photo. To create the shaped easel I folded some pale green card and placed the largest die on the card so that the top overlapped the fold and cut the shape out. I cut another identical shape to mat the image and make the easel topper
. The base of the easel card features the sentiment from Elegant Spring Flowers, stamped again with Memento Tuxedo Black, die cut and distressed with Bundled Sage.  I added generous blobs of Rock Candy Crackle paint to give the sentiment a frosty crackle and popped on some clear dew drops to support the easel. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions stamps: Monochromatic
Crop Stop: shaped cards
Fussy and Fancy : anything but a square or rectangle

Thanks for popping by today. Keep a beady eye over on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog as my talented teamies have loads of gorgeous inspiration for you over the next few days
