Persian Beauty

Hello Crafty Friends!

 Put simply - I adore this stamp set! Persian Motifs from Altenew - beautiful images, so easy to colour and the colour combinations you can use for this flower are endless!
This stamp set looks stunning coloured with Polychrolo Pencils on Kraft card (by now you will know how much I love kraft card!!) and re-stamped and embossed in gold embossing powder.
I began this card by stamping the 3 flower images from the set, using my original Misti, with Momento Potters Clay ink (a light distress ink will word too). IMPORTANT: keep your stamps in your Misti where they are - later you will go back and re-stamp the images, so they need to stay in place!

Next I coloured the images using Polychromos. When the colouring was done, I placed the card back into my Misit and re-stamped the images with Versamark Ink, then gold embossed. I then die cut them with the corresponding dies.
I made a frame from green cardstock with my mft Stitched Rectangles Stax Dies and coloured this with my Polychromo's too (I used a water brush to blend the colours a bit more).
I then assembled the frame (adhered with 3D foam) and flowers as shown onto a kraft card-base. I stamped a sentiment from a label stamp set on kraft card and cut-out to a strip. I adhered this to the front of the card with 3D foam. A finishing touch was to colour the flowers with the Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen.

Hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for joining me again!
