I just love this little bag that I made recently using the new fennel seed stamp from Stampinback . The stamp is coloured directly with the Art and Graphic pens from Zig, Kuretake in colours 308 and 58.
However, I rather like it so I'm sticking with it for the challenge on Carte Maniak'. It's a French language site, but card sketches are pretty universal.
J'espers que j'aurais de la bonne chance.

I must admit that th ephotography is not the best but the light is poor today and it was the best that I could do.
The stamp is Hopeful Harry and he is just in today. Let's hope that you get him before he sells out.
I have just coloured this stamp up for the web site and for sale at the Art Stamps fair at Newbury nekt week so it was just waiting to be used.

The stamp is one of the ones that I used for the Ismaki challenge but I have used it quite simply here with a mst of silver and lilac card. It's from the Cartes Postal sheet of stamps.
The ribbon is 16mm lilac satin edged chiffon.
The stamp was inked up with the Zig kuretake pens.
Cut a baase card 14cm x 14cm.
Layer it up with a mount of about 13.5cm x 13.5 cm
cut four squares that will end up slightly smaller than the mount square. Stick to the mount.
Colour the stamp with the selection of colours given above. You can use my example of do anything thta you want yourself. Stamp an oval shape that you've cut out. You can use a square one if you don't have an oval one.
Use 3d foam pads to stick to the card.
Stamp the word 'Nature' on to the card and embellish with a green flower.

The flowers are from the romance selection of Eco friendly flowers.
The paper I had in my stash but any soft green should do.
To Make this card:
All you need to do is ink up the stamps with your chosen colours and stamp up the images.
Cover the bottom of the card with some green paper and cover the join with sheer green ribbon.
Ink up the sentiment and stamp out. Mount onto another piece of green paper and stick to the card.

Tha background is achieved really simply by using a Zig Dottariffic pen in black to dot the card. The more pressure you apply the bigger the dot. I just applied the dots randomly to the top third of the card.

To make it:
Coloured the hydrangea stamps with the Art and Graphic Pens from Kuretake and stamp it twice, colouring up between stamping. Use the H2O water brush to move the paint a little and added some extra colour where the shadows should be.
Cut the images out and then get on with the rest of the card.
Cut a base card 10.5cm x 28cm. Score this at the 14cm point to make a card 10.5cm x 14cm when folded.
I cut a piece of pink card and scored it and then cut it to fit over the join in the base card.
I stamped the message, which is from the Inspirational sayings plate, on a piece of card and cut it out to leavea a small border. I mounted this on to a piece of pink card. This was then stuck to the base card.
I stuck the hydrangea images slightly overlapping on to the card with a mixture of adhesive and foam pade. The adhesive was for the bottom hydrangea and the foam pads for the upper image.
I decorated the lower part of the card with a broken line of green. One of the greens that I had used on the stamp.
