I love it when a couple of challenges fit together as if they were made for each other - when one card so easily fits. This week at AAA Cards they would like us to use 'one stash favourite' - if you've been following my blog or are a regular visitor you will know that I am obsessed with the Uniko Gerbera stamp set so it seemed a natural choice! Also this month the challenge set by Bev at Uniko has the theme of ... Flowers ... another great reason to use this stamp.
|The colours are more vibrant that the photograph shows|
I stamped and white heat embossed the gerbera across a piece of card before water colouring the blooms with distress inks. I then selected part of the image and die cut a panel. I then die cut a piece of vellum and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. The vellum is only attached by a few spots of liquid adhesive behind the lettering - this adds some dimension as the edges of the vellum panel lift up. The panel was then attached to a card base using foam pads to add some more dimension.
