A floral bouquet

As this is my first blog of 2016 a belated Happy New Year to anyone who is kind enough to read this blog.

My first card of the year is a 90th birthday card for my Mother in Law.  Its a shaped card using the lovely floral bouquet stamps from Clarity Stamp and also my entry into the January Clarity Blog Challenge Say it with flowers.

Ive used some light blue card for the base, the outside panels are made by stamping the flower heads onto Clarity card with Versamark and then shading with some blue and pink inks to get the watermark effect.  I've decoupaged 3 of the flowerheads coloured with pencils onto each side panel and some die cut swirls and finished off using the Clarity letterbox kit.

 On the inside I stamped the full bouquet coloured with pencils onto some white card and although its not easy to see from the photo the bouquet is framed by a Clarity oval stencil shaded with pink around the outside.

Thank you for looking, your comments will be very welcome.
