The Flower Challenge #27 Reminder

Hi there friends, I am back with my reminder cards for 'The Flower Challenge' again. This time we want to see you use your 'Older Stamps or Dies'. Lots of lovely cards in our gallery already. I do hope you can join in as we all have so many old stamps and dies to use I am sure ;)

Just make sure you use your floral stamps or dies and it must be the main image on your card.

I used my lovely WPlus9 stamp for my 'older stamp'.

I hope you have all your Xmas cards and shopping finished by now and that you all enjoy a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Thank you for all your lovely comments left for me throughout the past year....much appreciated !

Anyway come and see my card ;)

Watercolour, WPlus9, Christmas

Watercolour card 
WPlus9 Christmas Rose Bouquet stamp (Old one)
Kuretake water colours
N&T sequins
Altenew clear embossing ink
Wow Opaque Bright White ink
I stamped and heat embossed my flowers straight to my watercolour card front. Then I used my watercolours to colour my flowers. I watercoloured around my bouquet using a matching green watercolour......but diluted a bit this time. A sprinkling of sequins and my card was complete.

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge. 
You have until the 25th December to enter.

The Flower Challenge #27 'Use an Older Stamp or Die'

Hi there friends, it's December and Xmas is looming large, have you made all your Xmas cards yet? I am pleased to report I am there now, Xmas does tend to creep up on you doesn't it?

Anyway I am here to share my DT cards with you again. Over at 'The Flower Challenge' our theme this month is.....'Use an Older Stamp or Die'.

Just to let you know that we are also now on Facebook too see link HERE !

I decided to use this amazing flower die, not even sure I have used it before...maybe once! but I have had it for quite a while now. This time I used the pixelating technique I first saw used by Pooja  from 'Reusingwithquilling'. It wasn't the easiest of cards to make I must admit but I do like the effect it gives.

I did a slight twist though and kept my flower image non pixelated to make it stand out more. Yes... and all the little squares were hand drawn  and then painted individually too. Won't be making a lot of these me thinks lol!
I went for red and green as Christmas colours were in my mind, as it's December I did make another Xmasy card too. Ok come and see my cards.....and of course...enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Pixelated Flower card

Red, Green, Beautiful Lady, AltEnew

Sheena Douglass White card
AltENew Beautiful Lady stamp and sentiment (old one)
Pencil & ruler (for grid lines) 
TH Distress inks, Candied Apple, Bundled Sage & Forest Moss 
Versafine Onyx Black ink

I made my A6 top fold card base, then stamped my flower image direct to my card base. I then drew vertical and horizontal lines using my pencil and ruler all over my card front. 

I coloured my flower and leaves first, then painted each square with similar colours, allowing some to blend around the flower part. I stamped my sentiment, coloured it to match the flower and attached it to my card. A sprinklng of sequins and my card was complete.

Xmas card

Smooth White card
AltENew Poinsettia & Pine stamp set (old one)
Penny Black sentiment (old one)
Neat & Tangled sequins
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Kuretake  & Gansai Water colours
Promarkers and Copics

I made my A6 card base and stamped and coloured my flower image. I stamped my flower image again and cut out the middle parts to add as decoupage. I stamped my leaves direct to my card and then added my flower, raising the middle part up using 3d pads. I added my stamped sentiment after colouring the edge using my Copic pen and then added a few matching sequins.
