Flora..

Following on from the 3 leaf cards I posted yesterday...a quick post to show the remaining 2 cards I made.


 I added some stamping and further colour to the flowers....


...and some gold embossing to the centres.


Edited...Just realised it qualifies for SOC here, so I'm linking the above card in!

This last card is a 21st...it may not be traditional but I hope she'll like it.




Thanks so much for stopping by, I read and appreciate all your comments. Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  4. Oh wow Ruth, fantastic cards, I so love what you do with those baby wipes (have started to save some of mine...). They seriously look like quilted fabric or something. Stunning design on both cards!!!

  6. Blimey Ruth, I really can never look at another painty/inky baby wipe the same way again after your fab art with them! Doubt I'd make anything quite as lovely as you with them though!

  10. Hi Ruth, thanks for the visit or I might have missed these gorgeous cards. It's just been a bit crazy lately and I haven't been able to spend much time visiting. These cards are gorgeous. You have inspired me to use all the wet wipes I have used for mopping up ink, knew they would come in useful for something. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

  13. Gorgeous - each wipe creates something so individual and beautiful - the colours are wonderful. Love the 21st birthday card - aren't those tiny phrases just brilliant?! Love them every time I see them, and they work so well here.

  15. Oh wow. I love your sewing. You made the wet wipe flowers extra special because of that. Truly lovely, especially from a recycling effort.

  19. Wow wow wow so stunning, your art truly inspires me. I have to ask, the blue on the back of the leaves on the post after this, was that wipe up from the new blue frescos? I have them but lost on how to use that colour blue, I'm always the turquoise girl lol. But the blue on the leaves looks striking. Happy Art :-) Kezzy xxx
