I just let the card take shape by itself, starting with the beautiful WMS Folk Art Labels 25 stamped on a small piece of kraft card I had in my scraps with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.
I coloured the detail with some very old Tombow Markers (over 10 years old and still going strong !!!)
I then stamped the Easter greeting from WMS Compact Sentiments and embossed with WOW Tickled Pink embossing powder, I then stamped the little bunny from WMS A Good Egg and embossed with Clearsnap Pistachio.
I mounted this on Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circle cut from a scrap of pink card, and a Spellbinders Splendid Circle cut from a scrap of pale green vellum. As I had no more kraft card I stamped the WMS Cabin Plaid background on a piece of white card using Raspberry Adirondack Ink, which I distressed with a little Weathered Wood DI, and mounted this on a Zeeman pale blue square card base.
Then the fun really began. I stamped a flower from the Label 25 set in white embossing powder on some pink card. I decided to make it a little bigger and add some more colour, so I broke out the WMS Folk Art Medallion set. I stamped one of the flower parts and embossed in Pistachio. I then added a flower surround and embossed in Pistachio. Finally I added some little flowers in the empty spaces using pistachio and white for the centres.
I was only playing around so I didn't try very hard to line up the flowers so don't look too hard. Even so I liked it so much I used it as an envelope seal.
Next time I'm going to try using white card and embossing with white, Pistachio and Tickled Pink. The possibilities of this set are huge. I loooooove it!
