Summer Breeze

Hi folks! Had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday. Totally exhausted, overspent and blissfully happy when I arrived home last night. Had a fabulous time with my crafty buddy.....(Ouchio! that coffee was hot) Hope you are managing to put your feet up today! I am!
Here is a card I made using Joanna Sheen's Marsh Marigold stamp set from the recently launched Water Flower collection. I covered the card with some blue backing paper and inked around the edges. I stamped the image and coloured it with pro markers. I stamped the Heron straight onto the backing paper to retain the ripples of the water. I stamped the bird on another piece of card coloured it and cut it out. I cut the flowers out with the oval Nestabilities and topped onto a scalloped layer of silver mirri board. I adhered the topper to the card and carefully put the Heron in place overlapping the floral panel whilst ensuring the legs were directly on top of the image stamped straight onto the backing paper. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder to to silver mirri board. I die cut the sentiment with a Nestability; cut a couple of slits either side; threaded some ribbon through and adhered to the front of the card.
I added some glitter to the ripples of water and glossy accents to the flowers. I finished off the card with a large ribbon bow.
Ciao for now!
