Papertrey Ink Enjoy your day card


Hi There, 

I'm back for a quick visit to share another card I made for the Papertrey Ink Anniversary celebrations. This time Nichole challenged us to use at least two stamp sets to come up with a flower card. I decided to CASE one of my own cards and came up with this

I used Year of Flowers: Morning Glories and Harvest Berries. I stamped the background stripes in grey ink and then embossed the flowers in white before colouring them in with Copics. For the leaves in the right hand corner, I stamped the leaves in New Leaf Ink and then over stamped them with ripe avocado ink, but just on the leaf bases. This was so easy to do with my wonderful new MISTI tool  - I'm beginning to wonder how I ever managed without it!

I wanted to put some dewdrops on my card but each time I wanted to order them they were out of stock, so I decided to improvise. I stamped the berries in pink, then used drops of glossy accents, and when they were dried, I was quite pleased with them.

I'd also like to play along with
