Carnation Collage Art

Click here if you are looking for the Hambo "Go Ahead, Laugh At Us" Blog Hop!

I just love all of the collage stamps that I Brake For Stamps carries.  This card is from one of my favorite sets called Bird and Blossom Post.  You can find it at the IBFS store as a single stamp -  Large Beloved Carnation Collage - as well. Carnations are one of my favorite flowers.

Click on the photo for a close-up view! I used the Ink, Spray & Smash Technique on Glossy White paper and then stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.
I added a little flower that I crocheted and some beautiful black satin ribbon. You can find the May Arts ribbon (and many other beautiful colors) that I used at Hambo Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello from the U.K!
This is a stunning card.
You are so lucky to have this artistic skill - I stick to beading as they are the pretty things and I just have to put them together to best effect!
Lovely cards, I've enjoyed having a browse.
Thank you :-)
