Flowers and foliage at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there - and a happy mothers day to all of you mums! I hope you all have a lovely day! My Lucy is supposed to be baking me some vegan millionaires shortbread for mothers day - I shall wait to see what occurs!!!!

Another fortnight has rolled around and its time for flowers and foliage at the Christmas Card Club. This week I have only made three cards - all using Chocolate Baroque stamps - timeless classics I think.


I used bundled sage distress oxide over the back of the card then stamped the image in versafine clair. After that I added water droplets using my fan brush and dabbed away the water. Next I coloured the images using watercolour brush pens and finally added the pine needles distress oxide around the edges. Simple but I like them!

My mum has used sentiment stamps from hobbyart and apple blossom foliage dies and John Lockward poinsettia dies.



Hope you have a happy Mothers Day - hoping to go for a walk with my mum later - fingers crossed for the weather to allow it to happen!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
