Sweet Stampin' - 3 Or More Layers

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Anyhoo, it's Saturday and Sweet Stampinday - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is '3 Or More Layers' - and it's exactly as it says on the tin. You must include 3 or more layers on your card along with a stamped elements.

So for my card this week I decided to use a card I made for my mum for Mother's Day which I hadn't blogged. I adore this pretty stamp, it's not a particularly big one but it's so sweet. I created the flowers from dies, and coloured them to match the ones in my stamped picture.


To enter the challenge and a chance to win a prize please REMEMBER you must include a stamped element on your card, follow our theme and then link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog. 
Have fun and good luck!
Here's What I Did
First I matted and layered my base card with lilac and white plain card and a piece of patterned paper. Using a software program I printed a sentiment onto a sheet of colouring card stock and hand stamped the image next to it, this was then coloured with Copic pens. The background was created by adding lots of various sized dots using the same pens used in the rest of the picture. When finished I die cut the image and a piece of lilac card and glued them on top of each other. 

Next I die cut 3 flowers from white card and coloured them with Copic pens to match the ones I did in the stamped image. I also die cut 3 smaller flowers from yellow card, and punched out 5 small leaves in green. The tall leaves were simply hand cut from green card and coloured at the tips with dark green ink.

The finished topper and flowers were glued to the card base along with a pretty ribbon.  To complete the card I added a few pearls and clear glitter to the flowers and butterfly.

I love everything about this beautiful card Janine. That image is so sweet and you've coloured it perfectly. I adore the way you carried the colours in the image out to the flower embellishments. The long leaves behind mirroring those in the image and the colours in the flowers, utterly stunning! Love your attention to detail. This is an exquisitely crafted card hunny. You mama was sure to LOVE it! Big hugs, Wends x
