Pink Gerbera ...

I couldn't resist returning to my very favourite stamp - the Gerbera - for another card.  Apologies to my wonderful followers for the repetition but I still have love this stamp and believe it or not I have even more ideas!!  I also wanted to enter another card in the Uniko Studio challenge and it just seemed appropriate to use my favourite stamp.

I've been a bit of an idiot as I've struggled to create pink with my water colour paints and moaned because I didn't have the 'right' pink in a stamping ink and all the time I had a JOFY Limited Edition set of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics which includes two shades of pink!!  I think I need to remember to think outside of the box and repeat '.. all resources can be used to create cards ... all resources can be used to create cards ..."

I began by white embossing the image on water colour card, then painted the image with the acrylics, cut a panel to go on the top with a 'window' opening and stamped a sentiment.

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

  1. Simply stunning Elaine & I don't think I will tire of seeing Gerbera cards! Love how it peeks from behind the trio window frame. Thank you for joining in on the Uniko Studio Challenge :) Hugs Bev x

  2. The white embossing and then colouring looks gorgeous and this pink is perfect. Great way to frame this flower. Thanks for joining us at Ink

  3. Oh Elaine this is beautiful. I am the same with the Chrysanthemum stamp set - I have lost count how many cards I have made with it - the stamps are just so versatile! I adore how you have made this a three sectioned card and the front is raised from the stamped area. This would be such a beautiful 'Thinking of you' card for someone xx

  4. Love the idea with the 3 windows in your card front!
