Clematis Banner Card

I have been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days, so today was the first day I have got my crafting gear out. apologies if this blog post is shorter than usual, my hands are killing me :(

today's image is Eiglassing's Clematis which can be found to purchase HERE which I was generously given as a prize after I won a monthly 'must buy no stash challenge '


This I coloured with my promarkers, and then faux stitched around the outside ( I have to faux stitch right now as I lent my sewing machine out..also, it has a tendancy to run away from me when I do use it and I end up making a mess!)

I cut a 5 inch piece of card and faux stitched around that as well, embossed with a spellbinders A4 embossing folder  , lightly inked the dots with blue ink then attached to the card base 
I then went in my offcuts draw and pulled out some pretty paper remnants and made pennants of varying lengths and widths. these i layered up , overlapping each other and in some cases I added a little 3D foam pad .
I faux stitched across the main black piece and across he top, then added the image in the centre.
I has made me feel all spring like :)
I do hope you like it as it is quite different from the cards I usually make!
