Waratah

This Waratah design is from Stampin’Up’s discontinued “Bloom Away” set.

Sometimes I feel uncomfortable with empty spaces looking at me and get the urge to fill them. That’s what happened with this card, I just kept adding things to it, hard to know when to stop.

The Waratah stamp used on the 2 cards below is from KaiserCraft set ‘Road Trip’.

The butterfly stamp is from Magenta and the wording from Stamp-it.

This next one has turned out to be one of my favourites I think.

I inked up an acrylic block with pink down the middle and yellow around the outside. Spritz with water then stamp out. The colours will bleed together a bit creating an orange/red tone. Dry.

    

Colour in waratah with colour pencils, adding smears of Buttercup Liquid Pearls to flower head. When dry, cut out flower head as one, and all leaves individually. Magic Mount flower head to corner of inked rectangle, gluing leaves into place separately.

  

I found the background in my infamous ‘box’ of pre-done ones. The colours matched (would have been Distress Stain Sprays) so just stamped Penny Black ‘Classic Border’ 2005J down side and attached layers to complete card. Friendship stamp is from Hero Arts set ‘Hand Drawn Captions’ LL020.
