Something a little traditional

Here's something a little different from me as it's definitely more on the traditional side than my normal cards. The flowers that you can see are from the Stamp Addicts etched flowers range and this was one of my DT projects.

I am not very green fingered so I have no idea what these flowers are but, as you can see, I have used one of the flowers to create the background paper, and stamped the main image on to water colour card, coloured it with my Derwent pencils, cut out and decoupaged for a raised effect.

I have made quite a few cards using these stamps, and it has been fun to try out something a little different, so I will have a few more cards to post using these images in the weeks to come.

I'm goingto enter this card in to the following 'Anything Goes' challenges:

Catch the Bug

Looking at my blog list I have spotted some lovely Fairy challenges which I am itching to have a go lets hope for some snow overnight so I have a good excuse to stay in and craft tomorrow!
