Silhouette Flower Number 3

This card has been sent to our bestman's daughter for her twenty-fifth birthday.  Can't believe she and our daughter have reached their quarter century already.  Happy Birthday Claire.

For this card the stamp was inked with versamark and stamped onto vellum. Using a cotton wool ball the image was then coloured using chalks in various shades of blue and green.  The chalks were set using hairspray.  The frame for the image was made using a square nestabilities die.  A mixture of matt, pearlescent and embossed card was used on this card to give shade, sheen and texture.  The white card used on the corners was embossed using a daisy patterned cuttlebug folder.

The base card is a 14.85cm square card

Turquoise and bright blue pearlescent card from W Enterprises, Aberdeen
