Flower picture inspired by Ellen Vargo

What with holidays, work and lack of mojo I've been a really lax blogger for too long now.  There's been stacks on inspiration over at PaperArtsy so I can't use that as an excuse.  I think the monthly challenge timescale has lulled me into thinking I've ages to complete something and then I've still run out of time !

Anyway here's my first (hopefully) project for this month, inspired by the bright and cheerful journal page from Ellen Vargo - see here for Ellens post

I started with a piece of corrugated cardboard that I stripped the edges from.  This was painted and crackled (been missing this lol).  I then used one of Ellen's mini stamps and embossed the background using Cosmic Shimmer in Vintage Luna White - purchased for Christmas cards which have yet to materialise.

I then painted a spare piece of card in Orchid and stamped another mini stamp four times to form a flower shape. A few leaves and a button middle for finishing touches.

Thank you for looking  Sarah x
