Fabulous Florets for the Queen

The Queen for the Day at SCS this week is Rita (aka scootsv).  This is the beautiful card I chose to CASE.


The CAS challenge this week is to use this image for inspiration.  So I changed the butterfly from Rita's design to a poppy.


The flower was stamped on watercolor paper with StazOn ink and colored using the Marker Layering Technique.  You can find this technique here on SCS.  I found it very easy to follow and love the technique for this flower.  After fussy cutting it out,  I popped it up with dimensionals so it really stands out!

The leaves are sponged with a little Lucky Limeade to give them some depth.  I need more practice on sponging on the leaves though.

Addicted to Stamps and More has their Make Your Mark challenge starting today. I definitely used markers for this flower.

Pixie's Crafty Workshop is a busy place with all the gang bringing their snippets to the playground.  This is my second entry this week.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
