Fantasy Meadow Flower

Happy Friday ! 

I have another 'blue' card today featuring a gorgeous flower from Chocolate Baroque's beautiful Fantasy Meadow set which is the stamp of the week, starting today.    I've had this set for quite a while, it's another favourite.   I've also used a fragment in the background from the new fabulous Nature Fragments set.


The background is again with one of my favourite Dylusions inks blue colour combo.     I picked up droplets of ink from my craft mat to create more texture:)   I blended Picked Raspberry DI over TCW Chicken Wire stencil and then stamped with a fragment from Nature Fragments.   I coloured the flower with Prisma Pencils and added Stardust Stickles to the centers after the card was assembled.   

Here is a look at the complete A5 Fantasy Meadow set that is the stamp of the week (on sale!). 



Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend,
Shirley

Nature fragment with the Chicken wire stencil background is very effective & echoes the shapes inside the flower-head beautifully. Love the way your ribbon echoes the pink of the flower but adds ethereal floaty shimmery feeling to whole.
