First Strawberry Kisses Card

Good evening everyone

Well, I managed to get into my craftroom this afternoon and decided to use my newest rubber stamp from the "Strawberry Kisses" range from Crafters Companion.  It's called "Flower Power".  I coloured it using mainly FlexMarkers with only the yellow done in ProMarker.  Here's the card I made when I had coloured it:


The flower shaped card base is made from Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion and I cut this out using my Cameo.  The image is stamped onto Neenah Card, also from Crafters Companion and both the circle and scalloped circle that form the centre of the "flower" were cut using my Spellbinders nesties.  I coloured both using Tim Holtz distress ink.  This was the second image I coloured - I had a little accident with the first one when I stamped the sentiment onto it - the sentiment stamped beautifully but there was obviously some ink on the edge of my rocker block and I ended up with a long black line right through the image!  Grrrr!  Good job I had stamped the image out twice to start with!

Here's a close up of the topper


I think I must be a bit odd because I really wanted the card to have the overall appearance of a flower with a yellow centre!

Thank you for calling in.
