ONE OF A KIND (Flower)

May has come in Japan.
Made this card for the Hero Arts weekly challenge as usual. The theme for this week is 'May flowers'.
I use the opposite colors for flowers and leaves which we can see them in the world of nature. Haha.

ONE OF A KIND (Flower)

This is details.

Technique I used, etc:
I just only stamping the one flower in both ways - a flower stamp is from the Printed Flowers set.
One is stamped it with Broken China distress ink on a beige color paper. And the other is heat embossing on the same paper (the embossing powder is Sea Foam by Ranger Adironduck's).
I combined them with Prima paper flowers and the QK's die-cut leaves.
There's a partly stamping the manuscript stamp on the leave.

stamp used:
HA clear design Printed Flowers / CL290
HA SE: Artistic Windows / LP128
HA clear design All Occasion Messages/ CL272

American Craft, Bazzil Basics, Basic Grey / Archaic, Sugared

Inks etc.for coloring:
Tsukineko VersaFine / Onyx Black, Smokey Grey
HA Shadow Ink / Soft Stone, Ranger Distress Ink / Antique linen

Accessories: HA Gemstone Clear, Basic Grey brad & button, ribbons

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wonderful flowers. The pattern paper is terrific, love it here. It's so pretty.

    I have trouble with that border punch. I never get a full line perfect.... practice.... I love your card.

  2. Hi, Arlene! Thanks for your visiting!
    I'm sorry to hear your border punch doesn't work well.

    > practice....
    But... Arlene, I cannot say this Sunburst border punch works well all the time. I puched the DCWV paper out this time - this is little bit thick PP, maybe you know it. I had a hard job getting this result.
    Maybe this is caused by the shape of this punch.
    I'm not going to practice like you... I'm gonna punch thinner paper out from next time. Haha.
    Thanks for your generous comments!
    Have a beautiful weekend!
    Love, Tomo
