Jane Austen card with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers,
I have been busy working in my garden, but still took some time to make a few cards this week.  I have some new stamps from The Stampsmith and one of the sets is called Floral Alphabet.  As I was looking at the set my mind was imagining what I would create with the stamps.  The "A" made me think of Jane Austen...my favorite author.
Floral Alphabet Rubber Stamp Sheet

Really great set!!  I also used the Botanica Full Sheet for a little added drama.

I started with Solar White Neenah CS and stamped the Large flower with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.  I stamped the "A" with black dye ink and colored the skin with a peach marker.



The white CS is distressed with Tea Dye Distress ink.  The letters are some ephemera that I cut out and distressed.  I drew a line along two edges with a Metallic Pen and added a row of pearls.  The CS is from Bazzill.


I made two additional cards in different color ways.  For the second card the flower is stamped with Soft Green Memories ink and distressed with Victorian Velvet.  I stamped the rest of the letters with small alphabet stamps.  The CS is from Stampin' Up.  


For the last  card, the flower was stamped and distressed with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  The CS is all from Bazzill.



I have already sent one of these out to my BBF.  She also is a lover of Jane Austen.   Love how the flower looks as a background.

Karen
