Penny black card!

Hi crafty people ,
Hope you had a great festive time and I am sure you must have created some awesome gifts and cards for your near and dear ones.There was so much at to choose from and there are new additions in stock literally everyday.Let me know your wish list and would surely love to see what all you created using them and get inspired. For this Diwali I altered few pretty baskets and buckets to gift yummy confectioners to my friends and relatives. 
Ok now coming back on today's post I wanted to work on a card which can be created with any flower stamp in the collection. I have an obsession for Roses and this penny black power petal stamp set was just so tempting....
I also love fussy cutting my images so that I can layer them and create detailed dimensional projects.
The rose in the stamp set is quite bold and perfect for copic colouring. I stamped it with memento tuxedo black ink on Tim Holts patterned paper wallflower and coloured it with copics.
Similarly I stamped the leaves in olive grove ink by memento.
For the card layer I created my own glittered patterned paper. It was super duper easy. I used just two products and I had an amazing subtle glitter paper.
I took my wonder tape and stuck it at desired.

I peeled the red backing and poured in lots of clear rock candy dry glitter and I got this beautiful thing ... 

The next steps will be fun to see and I will do a tiny bit of explanations where ever needed.

I Used few penny black stamps-lost w/out you ,flower festival and Foliage Fancy to create some layers in the background .Heavily distressed the paper with Vinatge Photo and Walnut Stain. I also added loads of wink of Stella clear shimmer over the roses.

Added a bow and a clock charm with glue dots to jazz up the card and here is how the finished card looks like. 

I had a great time creating the Bouquet and the glittery pp.
So grab your favourite flower stamp or die, some glitter and tacky tape to created similar cards and surprise your friends .
Please share your creations & leave a  comment which is so very important for me.
Take care !!!!

Lots of love
