Easter primroses

Hi everyone, a card today for A spoon full of sugar where this week the challenge is 'gems' and Stamp Something with a challenge of 'green somethings'. I've used my 'Easter Egg with primroses' image which is now availabe in the digi-stamp shop, there are two more egg designs each with different flowers in the centre as well as three other spring floral images. I printed the image out twice once on white and once on BasicGrey Porcelain paper and then cut out the egg part of the image and paper pieced it on the white. The primroses are pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor and I've added stickles to the flower centres and to all the scallops then mounted it with dimension tape. The flowers are punched from the same BG paper moulded round a pencil and attached to the card with gel glue, added some candy dots for the centres. The green bazzil background layer has been half embossed with the damask style embossing folder and I attached ribbon around it, then added to the cream card blank. Finished with the Woodware sentiment and gems. TFL. Chris x

Very pretty card - awesome colouring.

Mada said...

Wonderful card as usual, Chris. :)

Love the half embossing (fantastic idea!) and the colours you used. I love green and your "mono" card is such a pleasure to look at.
Now I think I must have that flower punch you're using - it looks very very nice. Could you help a little with disclosing what punch (name, brand) is that? :)

I love all your new designs and I can't wait for the end of the week - I planned to finally 'catch-up' on everything I haven't got yet from your digi-shop.

Many, many hugs,
Mada
