William Morris Inspired Card

This card was inspired by a set of postcards I was given some time ago of various art work in National Trust Properties, some of them being William Morris.

The background is a Darkroom Door stamp coloured with Distress Inks.  This was then masked off and the edge was stamped with this medalion stamp.

The main image stamp is one of the first stamps I ever bought which I haven't really ever used but I thought it was perfect for this card.


The background was further coloured with distress markers.
A wooden button, stamped with Stazon using an Inchie stamp - these little images are perfect for this.

Seam binding dyed with distress stains.

Finally the button and the red flowers were given the Glossy Accent Treatment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Frilly and Funkie Challenge - William Morris Style
Simon Says Stamp - Bit o' Green


  1. Gorgeous WM creation Rosie. Love the background and the use of the glossy accents makes the flowers pop. Very elegant card
