Joanna Sheen samples - Pressed flowers 5

Hiya Everyone,

2 posts in a day - I'm doing well Lol! This is another of my Joanna Sheen samples made with the new pressed flowers stamp sheets. This card is made using the daisy set and I think it looks like clematis which is why I made a trellis style card. I stamped out the image several times and coloured them in with my promarkers. The image is layered with a smaller cut out of the original flower. I then used my glue pen and added some brown flock which added some extra interest. The leaves are punched onto white card (martha stewart punch) that have been coloured with my marsh green promarker. The card itself was a right faff as I cut a rectangle aperture out of the front and weaved strips of white hammercard and stuck them to the front. I inked all the edges with tumbled glass distress ink for extra definition. Once the trellis effect was finished I weaved some paper cord (that I also coloured in with my marsh green promarker) around the trellis. Again, I secured the ends on the front edge as I then covered up this with a rectangle frame which covered up all the bits I didn't want on show. I know I could've used my craft knife and cut out a trellis design but I wanted it to look more natural and prefer the woven look.

The sentiment is another of my dad carboot buys for next to nothing! I attached the sentiment and added some stardust glitterglue. I added the leaves to the flowers before attaching the flowers to the front of the card. I attached a piece of piece of light blue washed paper to the inside as you can see it through the gaps. I would have put a verse on it had I been giving it to somebody myself but left it plain as it was a sample.
