Isn’t that magical to imagine that you are a flower and you supposed to bloom? If you were a flower, which one would you like to be? One planted in a pot, meant to be kept indoors? A wild one growing free in the nature? Or a waterlily sort with roots under the water? I guess I am a water lover, so would go for the waterlily definitely. With such a thoughts I created this card using Canvas Corp Brands and Tattered Angels products.
The background of my card is linen paper. I coloured plaster clothes with glimmer mist (coffee shop). I stitched my plaster clothes onto my card.
Then I used the round swirls background stamp from Canvas Home Basic cling Grateful stamp with Versamark on natural linen paper. I embossed with clear embossing powder. I coloured it with glimmer mist (sapphire) and finally I ironed the embossing powder out. I got the natural look of the linen paper back under the swirls.
Next I just tore that background up, I applied the pieces on my card with plaster clothes and stitched it back together with some embroidery thread.
On the Grateful stamp set there is a nice sentiment: “bloom where you’re planted”, I stamped it on linen paper using archival ink and distress the edge with the same colour.
And guess what else there is on that stamp set, some tiny little hearts, so I used again archival ink and I trimmed them.
I applied my text and my tiny hearts randomly on my card.
And a close-up:
I am sharing my card with Craft Stamper’s january Take it make it challenge: “take a stamp”.
