Travels With My Aunt By Fliss Goodwin


A bit of artistic licence with the title here, as the main stamp I’ve used for my card is Lydia’s Journal by B Line Designs and the text around the image describes a journey to Europe with a companion. My imagination got to work and I could picture Lydia travelling with an older companion, maybe a relative and I could see them both exploring the French countryside and marvelling over the flora and fauna.
A slightly shabby chic card with a countryside look was the result and I hope you like it, as it’s really easy to make the background paper with that fabulous daisy stamp.

Here’s What You Need:


How To: 
·       Stamp the main image on smooth white card with the coffee ink and when dry, add colour with the watercolour pencils, dampening with a paintbrush to blend the colour. Trim to a panel and ink with Scattered Straw Distress ink and add Victorian Velvet round the edges.

·       Cut a piece of beige card slightly larger than your card blank and stamp the largest of the daisies from the flower heads set all over with the Crushed Olive ink. You’ll see that the flowers fit together really well when stamped close together. Ink the paper with Scattered Straw and add Mustard Seed to some of the daisies, together with touches of deep yellow watercolour pencil.

·       Stamp 3 butterflies from the set together with the mariposa text with the coffee ink on white card and colour the images with watercolour pencils. Cut them out and trim the text panel.

·       Assemble the card by tearing the edges of the background paper, then adding the remaining elements as shown in the photo with double sided tape and foam squares.

A real countryside flavour I hope and don’t forget to come back tomorrow, as there will be more to delight you!

Have a great weekend,

  1. Fliss, your card is truly a work of art. I love it. Best wishes, Yvonne

  2. So lovely, Fliss. The daisy background (in my favourite distress colours) looks so effective.
