Hobby Art Ltd "Abstract Flowers" Birthday Card

I'm still rummaging through my stamps and came across my box of Hobby Art stamps.  They have some lovely designs and I don't use them often enough, so addressed this by making this card.  It is so not my usual style, but I rather like it.

I started by using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink to stamp the Funky Fossil Designs "A7 Vintage Script" stamp in a few areas across the central area of the card.  I then used two shades of Ranger Archival Inks (Forget-me-not and Library Green) to add some colour to the surface. 

I decided it needed something else, to used more "Library Green" Archival Ink through the Funky Fossil "Abstract Pattern Stencil".  I then dragged a finger dabber with Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, along the surface of the piece. I then mounted the coloured piece of card on to a white piece of card and then on to a navy blue card, before mounting it on a white card blank.

On a white piece of card, I stamped three of the flowers from the Hobby Art Ltd stamp set called "Abstract Flowers", stamping them in Versfine Clair "Twilight" Dark Blue ink.  I decided at this stage to add a couple of round doode looking shapes to the background piece too.

I fussy cut the three flowers, using a wet glue on the underside of the middle of the flowers to glue the three flowers.  I then used a yellow and orange Posca Pen to colour the middle areas of the flowers.  Still not happy with that, I used "Crystal" stickles with my finger tip to cover the central area of the flowers too.

Finally, I used a Waffle Flower stamp from their "Oversized hello" stamp set for the "Birthday Girl", stamped in Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink.
