Vase of flowers

Good morning folks,
Thank you for joining me on this cold but bright morning.  I hope you have a lovely weekend planned.  It is the first Claritystampers East of the year on Sunday (and another one next Sunday!) I am looking forward to seeing everyone again for some crafty fun and chat.

The cards today are all done the same way but with different stamps and colours

For the first one, I used the stamp ans stencil set shown on the USA TV show.  there are two stamps here, and I used both.  The background is done with the solid stamp, inked with distress ink, spritzed and stamped in several colours
For the main image, I used the lineart stamp and stamped it on a spare piece of card, coloured in with pencils and cut out.  I brushed and sponged ink through the vase stencil, then added some leaves that are in the swirl on the stencil too.
I added the cut out bunch of flowers over the top and added a few gems

For this card I used much the same idea except for the background I used several inkpads on the stamp for the background and painted the stamp with distress markers for the main image.
I also splattered some ink over the card too (I rather enjoy splattering!!)
The stamp for this one is Flower stem a rather lovely image which was a new designs stamp  The vase is from the same stencil

The stamp for the third card is Briar Rose, another fab image

Hope you like them, have a fab weekend, whatever you are doing
