Good morning blog friends....

I thought I would use one of the many backgrounds I created using the nail polish technique.  I love how the colours have blended on this piece and the pretty shade of green gives it a subtle look

I added a slightly larger panel of black card then wrapped black jute twine around one side and finally adhered it to the white DL size card

Several flowers were made in black and red using one of John Lockwood's die sets, and I decided not to add any leaves, instead I had a good titter reading yet more of Tim Holtz's 'small talk' stickers and plumped for the one shown on the card

  • DL white card
  • black card - Creative Expressions
  • background - nail polish technique/Poppyfield Card Crafts
  • black jute twine & black gems- CE
  • starflowers die set - John Next Door JNDAD001 (there is also the starflower leaves die set available JNDAD002, available from The Ducks Doodahs, an online store and very reasonably priced)
  • sentiment/'small talk' - Tim Holtz
  • red gems - Hobby House

  1. Love this background - just right for the simple flowers! Would be perfect for flower/grass silhouettes!
    Think I will have to invest in the Tim Holtz Small Talk/sayings - they make me smile!

  2. Hi June this is a stunning card I love that background. Have a great weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. I must get my old nail polishes out to try this technique. Thanks, June.

  4. beautiful card and great colours June

  5. Oooh, this background is wonderful! The swirls of red and pale green really look artsy and great with the flowers. I may need to give this technique a try!

  6. Love the background and flowers June. After watching the video I bought some nail varnish from £1 shop so will give it a go.

    1. Excellent Brenda, you'll have to send me a picture or two
