Saturday Spot

Today I'm sharing a card I created for August's The Flower Challenge.

And I've added a little sparkle, as requested, using some iridescent gems and heat embossing the stamping.

I used the smaller of the two flower stamps included in Funky Fossil's Beautiful Inside and Out stamp set. And quite naturally coloured them up using a mix of pink and blue Inktense water colour pencils to create my favourite purples.

I added the sparkly gems to the middle of the main flower and also to highlight my greeting. Although as it looks as if I've stamped it crooked maybe I shouldn't have done this! 

Hers's a close up of the flower centre:

Inks: Versafine Clair + clear embossing ink
Colours: Derwent Inktense water colour pencils
Embellishments: Papermania iridescent gems

Thank you so much for spending some of your precious time looking at my blog today. I truly appreciate it.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
