floral card and tag: By Zuzu


Hi there.
I am sharing a card and a tag (not the norm for me) but i had a lot of fun dong them.
you can use any matching papers in any colours to change the look of these. I used some very old papers i have had for about 6 years.

I used the "Lace" stamp on a bit of plain green paper, cut it out and stuck it on to black card. I cut it out again with a touch of the black card showing.

I also stamped the words, flowers and leaves on to the same green paper. The paper has patches of different colours on it so i utilised those to give my flowers and leaves some tone changes.
the petals have been curled to add to the 3D effect.
very "easy peasy" but I rather like them.

Stamps used:

Katy Fox: Encyclopaedia Botanica. Leaves
Journalling words 3
Lacy Border
