Acrylic flower

Good morning folks,

Happy Thursday to you!  I hope you are having a good day.  I have a hectic few days coming up!  I am off work for a while but I have a workshop today, a trip to Crowborough for the Clarity open day on Friday and another workshop on Sunday - I've taken Monday off to recover!

Today's card is made using the new filigraphy flower stencil from Clarity and the filigraphy foliage stamp set.  These two work together and if you stamp the stamps into the equivalent space on the stencil, you get a fabulous filigraphy effect.

For this card, I used the stamp in the background.  I added open acrylic paint to my gelli plate, then stamped into it with the foliage stamps to lift the paint - I pulled the print

I placed the flower stencil over the top and sponged more paint through

I added ribbon and a couple of buttons before mounting it up

Thanks for stopping by
