For You Floral Cards

Having seen the latest challenge over at Just Add Ink #419...Just Add A "Twist" to "use something in a way that it wasn't intended" got me really thinking then I remembered a craft magazine article I had bookmarked to try.  These two small floral cards were the result.


The article used low tack tape but who hasn't got a little-used pile of peel offs in their crafty stash - they work just as well!  I also didn't want to spend time cutting tape into strips either.  My background was created on watercolour card, adding brusho paints, spritzing with water, once dry removing the peel offs to reveal the white geometric pattern.

After die cutting the decagon shape I made my own card bases with a top fold - overall size approx. 4".  I added a small die cut floral cluster and mini sentiment choosing colours in red and yellow as we're still enjoying lovely hot weather and that tied in with another challenge over on docrafts too.



I've used - Crafters Companion 300 gsm white card
WHSmith 140 gsm watercolour card
Yellow, Orange & Lemon Brusho Colours
Unbranded decagon die; Sue Wilson Petite Peony Cluster die
Mini sentiment die from The Range; Papermania white adhesive pearls


Linking up with Just Add Ink #419 ...Just Add A "Twist" (used peel offs as a mask)

  2. I agree - this is a great technique - a fab way to create backgrounds, really effective. Great idea to re-purpose the peel offs for this effect. Chantell Just Add Ink

  3. Such a brilliant way to re purpose the peel offs to create your lovely geometric pattern, Sue! The layers of brusho have blended so beautifully and I love how you’ve continued th geometric theme to your card shapes too. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  5. Fab cards and colours, love the shape, sadly the only peels off I have all say merry christmas lol! Never really been a fan so I'd have to cut lots of strips lol! I didn't realise that challenges still ran on DoCrafts, I thought all that finished when they ditched the forums?! Hugs - Debs xxx
