It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Vicki Gould.
For our first challenge this month Vicki has challenged us to use a technique called faux pressed flowers, if you haven’t tried this technique before you can find a tutorial for this on Splitcoast Stampers.
This is the first time I have used this technique, it is pretty easy and a good way of using up those prima flowers I have sitting here which I don’t use anymore as I have so many fun flower dies to use instead. Of course you could also use a flower made using a die if you wanted too.
For my card I used an old flower stamp set I have had for some time from Paper Inspirations. I stamped the flower using green ink onto my card and then adhered my prima flowers. Embossed it and it was ready to create my card.
Here is the inside of my card, I added the sentiment onto the designer paper panel which leaves the white piece free to write my message to whoever will get this card.
