Porcelain Bouquet

I love the clean look of this card, I used the Rubberstamp Tapestry Porcelain Bouquet stamp set, the inks used are Color Cubes Indigo and Lavender.
The cut out shapes were made using the Nestabilities Label Dies.
Again I ran around the shapes with an embossing tool after they had been cut to emboss the edges.
The ribbon was another story, I had no matching ribbon, so, I used white sheer ribbon and stained it with the indigo Color Cube Tra-dA a perfect match.


You can see in this picture that the center label shape is attached to the navy insert, you can also see that the vase has been cut out and attached with foam pads to give a 3d effect.

This is beautiful, Jak. I have that set, so I must try using it if I can produce something like this- this is delightful.

Открытка красивая, повеяло прохладой! У нас России, сочетание синего и белого называют "Гжель" , поэтому открытка для меня ,как напоминание о морозах м сибирской зиме. Ирина

Fabulous card Jak, I think I might have to invest in a set of those dies :)
I've been stalking your blog for a long time and love your work. I've just added a card to my blog using one of the Flippin Men sheets, I'd love to know what you think of it please :)

This is just lovely Jak. I adore the colours you've used. You inspired me to get out my tapestry stamps again, I haven't used them in ages, but the results were disappointing compared to yours. I shall have to have another go with a much more limited colour palette after seeing this.
