My last card in this trilogy. I used yellow Liquid Pearl in the center of the iris. It looks like a little fire at it’s heart. Really happy with the 3 cards I’ve made with this one flower design. Hope you’ve liked them too.

Purple Iris

Sometimes I employ artistic license when colouring flowers, but for those purists amongst you, here is a purple iris. I found this little beauty in the sale box at my local scrapbook store. Very happy with my find. So now I’m just having a play. This is my 2nd card in a trilogy. I used a little Gold Liquid Pearl for the highlights, which is so effective in real life, but the photos just don’t do it justice. Distress ink background; Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac.

Soft Pink Iris

There are times we all feel the need for a little softness in our lives.

I was attempting a shabby chic look with this one. The background I have had lying around for ages. It was an experimental piece, where I stamped out a background wording, painted over it with white acrylic paint, then wiped the paint partly off with a wet wipe before it dried. The idea being that the wording would partially show through. I wasn’t that impressed with my result, so put it aside. When looking for a background for my iris, I spotted it and wondered what it would look like embossed. More of the paint peeled off after that, but I liked it much better. It was actually a stationary divider, so quite thick card. I cut the tab off and used it for the thank you wording.

Back to basics – using your texters directly onto rubber, to stamp out your solid design images in multi-colour.

I added Gold Liquid Pearls to the center of the Iris, then set aside to dry before assembling card layers.
