To make this card I used the Anemone set from Sheena Douglas , which has coordinating stamps and dies. I coloured the flowers with Cosmic Shimmer paints, Purple Violet, Midnight Blue, Rose Hue,Yellow Sun and White Pearl. I mixed colours until a got a leafy green to paint the leaves cut and stamped from the same Anenome set. I used an 8 x 8 card blank and cut a lacy appeture using the Portuguese Background die from Creative Expressions. This comes as a set of 5 dies , I used the largest decorative die, the middle decorative die and the centre cut out rectangle die. I did this so that the patterns are cut out but remain “in” the card. I attached some velum to the inside of the front and stamped my sentiment. I attached the flowers using both foam pads and tacky glue, I do find that with this type of paint the foam pads on their own do not stick for long!!
