Love Grows

A quick post from me today, I need to get all my posts scheduled for the next week and a bit, then start getting clothes and stuff out to pack.  OMG I am running so behind (so what’s new there then Bev??)

My card today is a totally new colour scheme for me.  It’s not often I colour with the E93 – E99 family but I love this Prima Romantique paper so it had to be done.  The pretty lace is Grand Lace Trim but I am being frugal and cut it in half, so twice the lace for 1/2 the price lol

The stamp is Love Grows from Lili of the Valley.  I have also used the new Love Sentiments and Grunge Corners on the card.  These stamps are just totally fab and having them clear is such a bonus.

The seam binding and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used 4mm rose buds, 15mm roses, 20mm roses and 25mm hybrid tea rose

A close up of the heart from the Love Sentiments which I stamped onto Kraft in Walnut Stain then stamped the Cherish sentiment in black ink.

The inside showing the Grunge Corners in use, love them (think I already said that lol)

A close up of the image, I coloured the sky with the ink and brush technique (video tutorial on my Video Tutorials page.

    I agree, the colours are super and yet they are not ones that I would have chosen normally. it just shows that sometimes we have to get out of our groove and try something diferent.
