Inspired Flowers

We take inspiration for making art from many places and this card was inspired by Moorcroft Pottery that Florence from the Team had pinned on Pinterest. I have a Moorcroft piece that belonged to my Mum but unfortunately the family don't like it so it's carefully packed away.
I started with black card rubbing it with an anti static bag and then stamped the flower border with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold powder. I repeated with the smaller flowers from the set. The flowers and leaves were coloured with Twinkling H2Os and against the black card the colours really shine. I cut a tag and added a sentiment then stamped around the edges of it. The ribbon is used sparingly as it's one of my favourites and matches the purple card well.
Thanks for stopping by

The gold scalloped side edges provide a lovely echo for the bottom of the embossed flower border & I particularly like the contrast that your tag makes whilst still keeping the same imagery. It is very Moorcroft indeed - designs that I too am a huge fan of.
