Hello (again!)

I made this card to send to Mia for the April Card Chain Challenge.  I used the Colour Option (Walnut, Lavender and Jade), the Theme Option (Friendship) and the Product/Technique Option (Die Cut).

I used brown ink to stamp the flowers onto lavender textured card and the leaves onto jade textured card, stamping them a couple of times to get a good depth of colour before embossing them with clear embossing powder.  I then used the coordinating dies to cut the flowers and leaves and highlighted the pattern on the flowers with a brown Copic pen.  The two smaller flowers were attached directly onto the card and the larger flower was attached with a foam pad with the leaves tucked underneath the flowers.  I die cut 'hello' from dark brown textured card and attached it to the lower corner of the card.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Lil'inker 'Modern Mehndi' stamps and coordinating dies
     Altenew 'Simply Hello' die
     Copic E25 pen
     Snippets of dark brown, lavender and jade textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Clean and Simple

This is the lovely card I received from Gundi:
