Just Add Ink Challenge #56

Today I was supposed to be making some male birthday cards instead I ended up made cards for some challenges ( well at least I still have tonight & sometimes I work better under pressure).
The first card I have to show is one I made for the JAI challenge, as soon as I saw the sketch I new straight away that i would use the Just believe stamp set & Faux Silk technique, me made a similar one last week at my fortnightly classes. I haven't showed you that card yet as it is to go out to my Secret Sister next month.
I have stamped the background with the En Francis BG stamp & used the markers to ink up the flower.
I then applied glue stick directly onto white card stock & then pressed crumpled tissue paper onto surface & then trimmed off excess.

I am really happy with how this card turned out, these colours together are stunning & the faux silk adds a little texture.
Card recipe:
Stamp Sets; Just Believe, En Francis, Three Little Words
Inks; Early Expresso, Old Olive & Cherry Cobbler.
Card stock; Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso.
Accessories: Neutrals designer button, Old Olive satin ribbon, Hemp Twine, Tissue paper & Glue Stick

Would love to hear you comments PLEASE

Happy Stamping
