A journey through Ranunculus field...

Today I am taking you for a walk through Ranunculus fields... How romantic, isn't it? lol :).

I have to confess, this stamp is very special to me... It is the very first Stampendous image I ever saw and of course I immediately fell in love with it!

To complete the project you will need:

US folk:
UK folk:

Other supplies:

K&Co patterned papers, Inktense pencils, Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour paints, water brush, Pearl Glimmer Mist, Stickles, cut out napkin flowers, Decopatch glue, Black Archival ink, Victorian Velvet distress ink, black cardstock, selection of flowers, ribbons and gems to embellish, foam pads.

For full information on how I made this card, click here to visit the Stampendous blog.

I love the added dimension of the flowers that I raised with foam pads - it sets the background flowers into the errr... background really nicely! lol ;).

I really like the way this card turned out, despite the slightly unusual colour palette :). I made this card for my best friend who recently moved to Brighton. I hope she will find happiness there - she truly deserves it. (I really miss you, hun! xxx). And funnily enough by the time this post goes live, she will be having a great time sightseeing in Paris :))). She's probably waiving to us from the Eiffer Tower as we speak!

I hope you enjoyed this little walk with me and the Stampendous team :). Until next time!

Big hugs

Piękna kartka Asia! Bardzo mi się podobają kolory, bukiet, stempel i jak go ozdobiłaś jest piękny :) Czarna nić dookoła również mi się podoba. Próbowałam już przeszywać brzegi na kartkach ale nie potrafię jeszcze równo utrzymać ściegu. A tak ładnie to wygląda, że muszę próbować i próbować :)
