Good morning folks, today's card has a bit of a spring theme and the way time is flying past it won't be long until Spring is here lol. I've used the beautiful 'Exquisite Edges', one of this months new releases from Chocolate Baroque and combined it with an old favourite from Elegant Spring Flowers.
I began by making a distress ink background, splodging Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters,Squeezed Lemonade and a little Scattered Straw distress inks onto my blending mat, spritzing with water and mopping up the in with my card, dabbing up any excess ink and then splashing with water. I stamped the edge stamp with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and used part of the same stamp to create the corner motifs too.
The primula image was stamped with Memento London Fog ink,coloured with Graph'it markers and inked around the edges with distress ink left on my craft mat. I've added ribbon and pearls to finish off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
