Joanna Sheen samples - Pressed flowers 6

Hiya Everyone,

Yet another of my samples from the new pressed flowers stamps from Joanna Sheen. I decided to make an easel card for this one just to mix it up a bit! Although I love square cards I don't want to send Joanna Sheen 9 square cards and try really hard to do a good mix of shapes and styles.

I used a scalloped card blank as my easel card base and the papers are actually a funky fairy digi paper that I printed onto white pearl card. The lilac paper is another download from funky fairy but it wasn't quite the right shade I was after so I coloured over it with my orchid promarker! The sentiment I printed out straight onto the white pearl paper (font is Harrington) and I used my sizzix scalloped oval die to frame it. I used the viola,pansy and leaf images from the stamp sheet and coloured them in with my promarkers. I was really pleased with how well they turned out as I haven't done lots lots of blending with 2 different colours. I cut the images out and layered them up for depth. I also added a butterfly (Martha stewart punch) to the corner as it felt a little empty and definately looked better with it!

I added a swirl of purple gems as there was naturally one in the design of the paper so I thought why not? Lol! I attached a basic sentiment to hold up the card and added a few more pansies to the base as I had some left over.

I will enter this card into the following challenges:-

Flourishes - Flowers
Passion for promarkers - Make your own embellishments
Tuesday throwdown - Bling and sparkle

Thanks for looking!!!
