Floral at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning folks, can you believe it's the 1st August already? That means it's time for our new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this month the pink team have a theme of 'Floral' so there's lots of scope to play along. My teamies have got loads of inspiration for you so it's well worth a visit to the challenge blog if you have time.

I've used one of the beautiful stamps from Punky Flowers by Chocolate Baroque to make this card. I stamped the image, embossed with silver EP and painted with metallic paints. The background was made on my gelli plate, with a leftover background and a little added stencilling. I saw the lovely Lesley Wharton demonstrate this technique on the Craft Channel a few weeks ago and it's really fun, plus it cleans your gelli plate too so that's a bonus. You leave the paint until it's completely dry and then use parcel tape to life the background from the gelli plate, a genius idea and I love the effect.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts: A touch of sparkle
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Creative Knockouts: Anything goes
Get Creative: Lots of blue
Left of Centre: Quirky/weird

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
