Again I made two cards for you starting with another tall slim one. I recently discovered a pack of these base cards in my stash somewhere at the back of a cupboard. They are coming in very handy.
For my first card, I simply stamped the brush stroke from the Celebrate Artsy set in pale yellows and a greyish green before stamping my main image and sentiment (Friends and Flowers) in black and finishing off with a couple of sequins.
TIP!: When using stronger colours for the brush strokes, use the 2nd or 3rd generation images for your card. This helps to keep the focus on the flowers.
For my next card, I combined the Hope Blooms set with the Retro Circles ARTplorations stencil which is dry embossed as part of my background.
I simply stamped and coloured the butterflies using alcohol markers before adding some glossy accents to one of them. It slightly changed the colours which adds a little more interest. I then stamped my sentiment down one side of my base card, edged my panel using a gold leaf pen, another treasure I recently found, and layered everything as seen.
