Apple Blossom Thank You

This is the first project I've made using stamps from Scrolls Work, and let me start by saying how blown away I was by the quality of the stamps! These have to be the most deeply etched stamps I've ever used, making a crisp, clean impression very easy to achieve!

I decided to make this card using kraft card - a striped kraft for the card base and Bazill kraft card for everything else. I used #4555 Lg Apple Blossom, which I stamped using Bundled Sage distress ink to make a background. I then coloured between the flowers with a Vanilla Promarker. The individual flowers were then stamped separately with Sepia Archival ink and coloured with 3 different shaes of blue, pink and orange. The were cut out and applied to the card using adhesive foam tape.

#1820 Thank You
was stamped in Sepia Archival ink, and then mounted on a brown mat, as was the main part of the card, and then assembled with my trusty ATG gun :) As ever, click on the image for a larger view!
