Is it really August already?! Where has the year gone...
I finally got my hands on the Toile De Jouy Jet collection from Craftwork Cards and this is the first chance I've had to open it up and create something with it.
Having trimmed the 8 x 8 sheet down to 5.75 x 5.75 to form my card background then used the leftover 2+ inch strips to cut out a few of the flowers to add to the card front. On these flowers, a paper towel was used multiple times to get a nice blotted effect.
Laying vellum over the entire image ensured the focal point was on the cut flowers and not the background.
Cutting out a one inch strip of watercolour card, I embossed a Happy Birthday sentiment (Craftwork Cards Boutique Floral stamp set) with pastel shades three times in 3 different colours then brushing the lightest blue colour wash over it. To finish the card, I added three clear drops on to the vellum.
This is what the finished product looked like after approx 40 mins.
