Indian Spiced Blooms

Hello there and thank you for popping over to my blog  :)  This is my Inspiration post for Sheena's Ink-ettes.  I took my inspiration from watching old t.v shows of Sheena's, when she launched her Indian range of stamps.  I loved the mix of bright colours and I thought 'Oooh - I wonder if they would work with other Sheena stamps?'  So here is my little 'experiment'! :)  The stamps I have used are all from the 'Little Bit Sketchy' range, Blooming Beautiful, A New Leaf, and Simply Scriptly.

I used Aqua tints and SN alchohol pens to colour, Versafine Ink and drawing gum.

I started by stamping foliage onto the a piece of card and masking with drawing gum.  I then painted a wash of pinks and oranges over the whole panel.  

While that was drying I stamped the flowers onto acetate and heat embossed in black, then over stamped with the script using black Stazon.

I stamped a small flower and leaf in co-ordinating DI's randomly all over the background. 

I took a piece of Kraft card and embosse it in a folder.

I added gold gilding wax around the edges.  This makes a pretty border for the background panel.

I cut the flowers out and added gold Pebeo marker.

I attached the background panel to the Kraft card border and then to the basecard.  I then attached the flowers with dimensional glue to the back ground


I added Stickles to the centres of the flowers, and to the corners of the card

I think this is a lovely card for several occassions, male or female, of any age.
