No Flower Embellishments

This is my second card today, please check for the one below "Birds of a Feather"-thanks.
Crafty Cardmaker's have asked us to make a card with flowers if we wish, but we aren't allowed to add any flower embellishments. Cool! Saves on postage. Stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, the four flower stamps are in a Hero Arts set called Poetic Petals, it's an old but favourite purchase from E Bay.  Using a white wax crayon, one from a child's pack will do, I added white touches to give a resist. (Wax Resist). I then blended the background with Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed. It's amazing how white the sections become after you have buffed with a soft clean paper hankie. Added a sentiment and a toning piece of ribbon.


  1. Lovely card Caz, great resist with the crayons, funnily enough I was just looking at that stamp set last night while I was looking for butterfly stamps,those Hero sets are ageless, love them


  2. Oh. WOW. This is absolutely STUNNING!!! LOVE the bow--such a fabulous detail! This is fantastic, Caz! Thanks for playing along with CCM! :)

  3. A beautiful birthday card. These flowers stamps are in my drawer, too.... they haven't seen any ink for long.

  4. Wow, a brilliant effect, great tip to use the crayons.
