Just a Hint

How many little pots of odd Brads, Buttons and little Gem Stones have you got in your stash and never seem to get around to using? Well this is a simple way of using them up.

I love black and white cards. It's my thing at the mo. That and Kraft paper.........natural and raw........but that is another project.

I used all the flower stamps from the various sets of Sugar and Spice clear stamps, stamping them on plain white card with black ink. Using a black glaze pen, I dotted some and drew straight lines on others rather than colouring in the petals. Even a black glaze pen on solid black stamped petals adds interest.

But the flowers still needed a little something to liven them up when I placed them on the card. So in the centre of each flower I added a small coloured brad, button or little gem to give just a hint of colour.
The sentiment "Just for You" is from the new All Lined Up clear stamps. I love this sentiment because it's not just for a Birthday is it?
Why Hello, Hello, Hello? Cos I was watching the Bill whilst making this card it just sprang to mind. The Hello is from the Scribble Flower set of stamps.
