The Card Concept - Stampin' Up!



(join)


I immediately thought that I do
 NOT have any of the really awesome
NEW bicycle sets out there.
 But I do have an older set
 I absolutely love
The Postage Due set from 
Stampin' Up!





I used mini daubers to sponge
 distress inks on sections of the 
rubber cling image.
Navy is a nice pairing with Red and I layered some Navy cardstock. 
Papertrey has a "MUST HAVE" 
distress coverplate  (here) that I used that 
really gives a "linen" feel to your plain flat cardstock.
Every time I see it I think, wow, what paper is that.... lol

Altenew Build-A-Flower for Release: Larkspur




Welcome to Build A Flower
Larkspur!

Here is a brief description provided by Altenew:
Larkspurs belong to the buttercup family and are native throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The flowers bloom in a variety of colors from white to blue-violet.
Larkspur flowers are irregularly shaped and bloom loosely along a vertical stem.

ALTENEW Card Blog



I used some pretty intense colors for a tropical feel and watercolored a loose relaxed 
background for a beachy theme.

I inked the outline layer and added clear embossing to add a little texture and shine. Black enamel accents dotted for even more dimension.




Just a little gold adds shine 
and elegance!
