Elegant Florals

I so enjoyed making the background for my card yesterday I thought I would use the same method today.

This time I used a square Spellbinder's die to cut out and emboss some white card. Then I masked off the border with post it notes and block stamped some Frayed Burlap, Bundled Sage and Weathered Wood, (spritzed with water) onto the card. Some leaves from Hello Sunshine and the verse from Life is Good (both GKD) were stamped onto the background with Bundled Sage. I stamped the flower and sentiment from Elegant Florals with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear ep.   The image was coloured with a black Copic pen leaving some white parts for highlights.
I made a frame from embossed forest green textured card and mounted this on top of the image which was then attached to the mat with dimensionals.
