Baroque Motifs

2 colours & some pretties! this card is so simply elegant, "Baroque Motifs" with River Rock & Chocolate Chip card stock, inks & the scallop punch, the Ribbon & Pearl finish it off nicely.

I sponged all edges in River Rock & stamped the swirls & little flowers in both inks. The motif is stamped on River Rock with Choc Chip ink then punched out twice with scallop punch to create a flower.
Thanks for sharing this punch tip with me Cass!
Here's how the punching is done; punch the scallop & adhere it lightly with snail to some A4 scrap paper (I just used copy paper) & this is so you can actually place it back in the punch & align it like below. Have a play as you can get a few different pointy flowers.
