Hello friends. I hope you're having a good weekend.
I have some flowers to brighten up your day.
The Flower Challenge
is asking for pink and gray this month. So that
was my starting point.
And I wanted to enter the Stamplorations CAS Challenge
I picked out a Stamplorations stamp that would work. They have a color twist
of using burgundy, so I thought these flowers would be a good choice.
Craft Stampers Take It Make It
Challenge is Anything Goes but must
I've stamped with gray ink and watercolored the flowers. I used mainly pink
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and added some Burgundy that
I swiped from a Stampin' Up! marker on my palette and picked up
with my brush to add some depth to the flowers.
I was happy with the way it turned out and thought it looked best on a gray card base.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. It took me longer to decide on a
sentiment than it did to paint the flowers! Do you have that problem?
I cut the image around the frame and added to a slightly larger
piece of white cardstock.
I added some splatters of white paint. I had some splots but was able
to blot them with the corner of a paper towel and cover the yucks with the Zigs.
The whole design piece has some foam behind it to pop it up.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
