I then cut out a fancy square shape using a die from a dictionary page. I then stamped my snowdrop using Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink and also stamped the greeting in the same colour. I watercoloured the leaves with some watercolour pencils, and added a little grey shading to the flowers with watercolour pencils too. I cut a mount to size and inked around the edge with the sepia inkpad - you will see this is a technique I use a lot for two reasons - firstly you always get a background that will match your stamped image, secondly it saves me having to have huge quantities of different coloured cardstock to hand when I am crafting on the go!
I mounted it all together just adding some ink around the edge of my greeting to give it some definition before mounting it onto the card.
I like the feel of this card.. all as delicate as the snowdrops!
