CR84FN#35 Colour Challenge - Irises

Happy Thursday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Cupcake Creations Colour Challenge this week.  The latest thing in Papercrafting seems to be stamping on Print, so I have made this card doing just that.  The print is only quite light so my water colouring has blended and hidden the print behind my image.  I do like the effect it has on the eye.  My border was made using the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis Punch, cut into 4 pieces and reassembled to make the square.  I followed a tutorial by Becca Feeken on her blog here.

Stamps: Flourishes Calendar Set 2, S/U's Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace, Basic Grey, DSP Patterns Pack, - Neutrals
Ink:  Stazon Black, Basic Grey
Markers: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Basic Grey
Embellishments:  1/8" Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon, Shiny Silver Pearls
Tools: Martha Stewart Garden Trellis Border Punch, Aqua Painter, Fiskars Cutter and Scoring Tool, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Jone's Gloopy Glue
Thanks' for stopping by today.
