Something Botanical

It's been one of those weeks this week with little time for blogging, or crafting for that matter, but luckily I have some cards from the latest Stamp Addicts release up my sleeve, and they are quite a departure from my normal style.

When I was a teenager I had a book called 'The Diary of an Edwardian Lady' which I really loved as it contained some beautiful water colour drawings of plants and animals. The stamps that i have used for today's card really remind me of those botanical drawnigs from all those years ago.



This is made with the Engraved Flowers set which you can find here.

I have stamped all of the flowers on water colour cards and colured them with Derwent pencils before cutting them all out and decoupaging them on to my triple easel card which I made using a BCE template.

The stoppers on the left and right are also made with flowers from the set and the sentiment in the middle is also included.

As you can see, the flowers are quite detailed so I didn't really need to to much in the background and I have just stuck with very traditional red and green card stock sheets.

The Anything Goes challenge is 'Anything Goes' - so I thought I would enter this card - particularly as it is quite a change from what I would normally do.

Thanks for looking.
