Welcome to another challenge from Fusion! Today we have a beautiful Spring-themed photo inspiration and a fun sketch.
I colored up a whole heap of images from the Spring Flowers set and die-cut them with the matching dies. I then arranged them in a bouquet, trying to mimic the photo with the layout of the foliage and flowers. My trusty Press n Seal came to the rescue, holding the bouquet in place while I worked on the rest of the card.
What is hard to see in the photo is the background on the gray cardstock panels. I stamped a tiny scripty background stamp onto the gray with Perfect Medium ink then brushed over Pink Gumball Perfect Pearls. It gives a lovely pink shimmer. I cut a sliver of the gray and added it to the card base slightly under the main layer, just for some added interest. I then positioned the flowers and the extra little dots before stamping the sentiment and adding the final die-cut "you".
The "you" and all the flowers were painted with clear sparkle pen. Here's a photo where you can hopefully see the Perfect Pearls shimmer a bit better:
Thanks for visiting! The design team have made some gorgeous cards, so I hope you'll head on over and check them out. I'm linking this up to the Use a Die-Cut challenge at Simon Says Stamp
