More of Ruth's stamps

Why is it I have so much inspiration now when I'm about to go back to school? I managed another play using Ruth Hamilton's Pick of the Bunch stamps from Tonic studios. These stamps are from the chrysanthemum set and the Rudbeckia set. I used resist technique to make the background and watercoloured the flower with the summer set of distress inks. The swirly die is from Marianne designs. It isn't the best watercolouring. I thought I would try the back of some pearlised card, but it obviously wasn't the right sort of pearlised card!
Thanks for looking!


  1. This is gorgeous,love the image...fabulous colours.xxx

  2. Another beautiful card.The way you've created the background is really wonderful - something I've never tried. The colours are gorgeous. Ruth x

  3. The background is a beauty & I love the way you used the navy ribbon with the other blues. Super the way your little die-cut flowers echo the colouring of your image.

  4. Snap!! I haven't had any inspiration at all and suddenly it's back! Maybe we need the stress of work (even the thought of it, lol!) to get us going!

    Fabulous card Sally; love the background you've made which is perfect with Ruth's lovely stamp.
