Card making, Craft

Be Happy

Here is a card I made using

  • the hibiscus stamp and sentiment stamp from Crafter’s Inspiration magazine issue 9
  • the bee stamp from Crafter’s Inspiration magazine issue 10
  • Versamark ink and gold embossing powder
  • Spectrum aqua markers – Red Violet, Blossom, Sunflower, Aquamarine and Boulder.
  • Crafter’s companion watercolour card (5″ square)
  • 6″x 6″ card blank
  • Gold glitter card (and some cheap satin gold paper)
  • Tonic threaded scalloped square die

I really like the detail end of the spectrum aqua pens and they enabled me to add detail veining to these flowers and to add the stripes to the bee.


I initially matted and layered this onto some gold mirror paper that I have had in my stash for some time. It was obviously cheap as the collall lifted the colour and it smudged so I had to rethink the card. I made a frame using some gold glitter card and my tonic threaded scalloped dies.

Here is a close up of the colouring-



I actually prefer this. Yay! for happy accidents.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges – – Flower Power – Dies and /or punches

Keep it Crafty!
