Have a Beautiful Day

An Aussie themed card from an Aussie girl... my card today bears - gum (Eucalyptus) leaves and blossoms, in two dimensions....Inspired by the stem of pink flowers in the photo below. Firstly I stamped my background foliage in lightly with Distress Ink and used pencil to colour in just a few pieces. Then I die cut some gum foliage in two shades of green card and also the small sections of the flowers in crimson and green again to make my flowers 'pop'. I smooched the edges of my image panel and stamped on my sentiment, then adhered the layers on a green card, finally I added my die cuts. I am posting to Stamplorations CUTplorations May challenge,  also Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies.  Thanks for taking a peek

  4. Such a pretty design, with the light stamping behind the beautiful die cut. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with us at CUTplorations, Robyn.

  5. This is gorgeous! Bear gum leaves - never heard of them... I thought it was an Eukalyptus. That subtle stamping in the background adds so much depth!
