Pearls and Lace

Some cheerful flowers to brighten things up for this card made with Clarity Stamps and stencils and a Heartfelt Creations sentiment stamped onto a die cut.  The background has been created by covering a piece of Clarity Geli card in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and dry embossing with a leafy swirl stencil from Clarity and matted onto some dark blue card.

To stamp the flower I've used a technique I've not tried before with any success.  I coloured the stamp with my limited number of Distress Markers eg Meadow for the leaves, Worn Lipstick and Persimmon for the flowers. I am saving up to get some reinkers to try out the method of stamping onto a piece of felt and colouring with the inks but at the moment its not something I possess.

There is a small pearl in the centre of each flower both in the main image and border.  I've die cut a fancy border in dark blue and added a lace border to the edge of the card. Finally I've gone round all the edges with some stickles glue to add sparkle.

Thank you for looking, your comments will be very welcome.
