Vintage Iris

 Morning first of all welcome to my new follower CINDY 

 I have a slimline card today using Vintage Iris from Woodware.

First of all I heat embossed the image in white on a water coloured background -I then stamped the image on a pre-made background in my backgrounds box-made quite a while ago so no idea what was used but there was some texture on their looked like Pebeo Copper Prisma had been dripped on-I then cut out the iris, circle and paper pieced.

The strip of numbers were cut from the inside of a kitchen roll and added two strips of washi tape---yes finally bought some lol.

I then added tape and partially stamped image to the envelope-too late for the challenge intended!

Oh, my, this is beautiful! The background is sooooo pretty. I don't know where I've been, but I only just became acquainted with Woodware stamps after seeing something on Pinterest. Well, now I have several in my collection. I probably went overboard.
