Not Quite Navy Apothecary Art

I recently joined up to a Facebook page called Stampin' Up Card Swap. You make a card for some one and then send it off to them and you get one in return. It is a fantastic way to get different ideas from other people.

The people that partake in the swap are from all over the world, so who knows where your inspiring card will come from! 

If you want to join in the fun with others around the world Click here to find the Stampin' Up Card Swap Page.

This is the first swap that I have done though this page. It is destined for the US and I hope that the recipient will like my card that I have made for her.

I used the watercolour pencils to colour the flowers and sponged up the card a bit with Crumb Cake ink to give it a bit of a vintage feel.

I also layered the pleated satin ribbon over the seam binding ribbon for a different effect.
I wish I could be there to see the recipients face when she receives this card. I do love to see peoples reactions to the cards that I give them

Have fun and Happy Stampin'

  1. This is really beautiful, Rochelle. I love the sponged Crumb Cake background, and the way you've combined the blues. Gorgeous!
