I have another pretty LaBlanche stamp from Joan's Gardens to show you. This one is called "Meadow Flower" (LB1237). The image was stamped on LaBlanche Specialty Paper and colored with Distress Inks and Nibs. I love how easy it is to color these images; it takes just a little color (ink) to make them beautiful. The entire piece was sponged using the Blending Tool and blue Distress Ink. It was matted on black card stock. The black corners are from one of the new Spellbinder die sets called "Lace Doily Accents". Along the left side of the stamped piece I added the Cheery Lynn "Tropical Flourish" (B127). The flowers were created by die cutting the flowers from the Cheery Lynn "Darling Daisies" die (A196). I wanted these flowers to resemble the flowers in the stamped image so used a pair of Deckle Edge Scissors to snip off the ends of each petal. Two flowers were stacked together. Tiny beads were added to the center of each one. One of the Cheery Lynn "Mini Butterflies" (DL112) was added above the flowers. To complete the card, a small black bow made with the Bow Easy was added under the die cut flowers.
As you know, you can purchase your LaBlanche stamps and Cheery Lynn Dies from Joan's Gardens.
So far we only have three entries in the Joan's Gardens Challenge. I hope you are working on your entry. Remember you will be eligible to win a prize PLUS if you are the winner will be entered into the drawing at the end of the year for a $100 gift certificate from Joan's Gardens. I'm looking forward to seeing your pretty card.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
