This week, I've chosen to use a lovely set of stamps from Chocolate Baroque, called 'Elegant Iris'. I've had this set of stamps for a long time, unused until today. I decided to steer away from the more traditional lilac colour for my iris, and based my colour scheme on a lovely iris called 'Dame de Coeur'. Elaine, a fellow Guild member gave me link to a fabulous website that sells these irises, they are beautiful, and I am thinking of getting some for my garden.
I printed off a lovely background paper that is available from Chocolate Baroque in the form of a download, it is from the Stucco Backgrounds- Bright Damask collection. Then I stamped the Iris on a script background onto Hot Pressed Watercolour paper. I use this a lot, as it will stamp very smoothly. I used Distress Inks to colour the background of my stamp, and Inktense pencils to colour the image.
I used Clearly for Art by Wendy Vecchi to stamp three of the flowers out, and moulded these slightly. I then stuck these to the card, adding three of my very vast, underused button collection.
Thanks for popping by today, Judith xx
