Caribbean Flowers

I was going to update last night, but my keyboard became possessed. Seriously, it would only type backwards. One of the arrow keys was jammed, so as soon as I typed anything, it would jump back a space, thus, backwards text. It made it very hard to even log into blogger to moderate comments, nevermind an update, lol!

Anyway, it's all good now. Here's a card I made. I was feeling in mood for some Caribbean colour scheme. I actually used some Bazzill cardstock that is nearly the same tone as Cool Caribbean, but it's textured. I stamped it with the various flowers from beautiful blooms in Caribbean and White. I had this cut piece of velvet ribbon laying around, so that too got placed on the card. A couple notes about punches and these flowers: the dotted center fits nicely in the 1/2 punch. So if you screwed up and didn't get it centered (like me...) stamp another, punch it out, and attach with tape or a pop dot! The large 9-petalled flowers will just fit in the 1-3/8 circle punch. I cut mine out and mounted it on the circle instead. The birthday greeting on here is from the second batch of Studio G $1.50 clear stamps. The ink kept pilling, so I stamped it in versamark then in caribbean. That seemed to solve things. Ah, the differences between acrylic and photopolymer!

  1. Love the colours! Fantastic! Thanks for the tip on versamark and ink with acrylic. I was getting frustrated with that as well or that it would stick to the paper. I'll try this next time. I love my rubber too!
