Faith Bouquet

This card was made for the March 2012 Card Swap over at
I stamped the flowers three times. Once straight up, and then on both sides with the middle (stalks) overlapping. I used my paper piercer to make two little holes on either side of the stalk bundle and then threaded twine through and made a bow.
The flowers were also stamped by first putting Crushed Olive ink on the stalks, I would then rub away any green on the flowers part with my fingers. I then colored the flowers in with a Memento Marker straight onto the stamp before stamping. What I like is that there is some residual green left over that blends with the pink creating a lovely shaded effect.
The sentiment was stamped vertically and the edges of the panel was shaded with Antique Linen.
I don't have a corner punch that punches an inverted half-moon shape but I do have a large hole punch. I just punch half a hole out of the corners :D
The little pearls were glued by hand.
