Queen Anne's Lace

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

Feeling in a floral mood this week, so I decided to ink up the "Queen Anne's Lace" stamp from Just for Fun Rubber Stamp for today's cards. I had so much fun creating this scene, that I decided to make two cards, slightly different but same method. 

I put a diecut circle in place as a  mask, then inked up white card stock using distress ink. Removed the circle and then stamped the Queen Anne's Lace image using the same turquoise ink. Then I simply stamped it in black. I used a stencil for the black design in the two corners and finished off with the birthday sentiment. And added a couple small butterflies with some rhinestones.


For this card I used a torn paper mask for the  hills and the same circle. Then inked the background using distress inks. Removed circle and hill mask and stamped the floral image in green and then in black. I love silhouettes stamps, they are so much fun and so easy to use!

Product List:
(both  by JFF)
distress inks (broken china, mowed lawn), versafine onyx ink
MS butterfly punch, sticky rhinestones
stencil (sorry I don't know the name or mfg.) 
post-it note for masks
