card swap - spring

this card is for my card swap group, I thought I should put this on my blog to show what I've been up to. We have now changed the name to our group to We Love Our Card Swap. It was about time we changed the name and I think everyone is happy with the changes.
My first card that I made, I used a hydrangea stamp,I love hydrangea's anyway and I thought it was fitting with the theme . I stamped with distress ink and then painted with the ink. To get different shades I used good old sakura pens. These where my first purchase and every now and again I use them as it gives me great colour with a little sparkle.
The edges where stamped and embossed in white wow embossing powder, and then also distressed. This was then put onto some miri card where I embossed some lines to frame the picture. It was then mounted onto some brown card where I used the same stamp to emboss the edges and then used the wow powder again so it all matched. I finished the card with purple bow and then placed pearl cosmic shimmer to the flowers and embellished with some pearls.
i hope my swap partner likes my card.

  1. This is a beautiful card Maria and I smiled when you said that you used your good old sakura pens.So often we are so keen to see and use new products and techniques that we forget about our old ones. Lately I have asked a few crafters about Sakura pens and they havent heard of them!!!!! dont know what they are misssing. I recently got out my medallion stamps and combined them with a new splodge away mask and it made a lovely card. Happy Crafting.x
