Big Thanks

Hi, it's time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this week I am the hostess.  Here is my sketch.

Those circles can be anything and I chose to make them flowers.

Because I haven't felt like coloring lately, I've been turning to multi-step stamps to give the illusion of coloring.  I stamped several flowers and leaves and cut them with my Scan n Cut.  I cut a strip out of a card front-sized panel and then stamped leaves directly onto the remaining two pieces.  The sentiment was stamped in the "gap" and then I added foam tape to pop the front panels up on the card base.

The flowers are adhered with a mixture of liquid glue and foam tape for added dimension.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll check out the gorgeous cards made by the DT and have a go yourself.

Products used:

Stamps:  Sunflower Daisy (Altenew), Embroidered Blooms (PTI)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Golden Sunset, Summer Afternoon, Green Fields sets (Altenew)
Cardstock: White
Accessories:  Scan n Cut, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

Beautifully done, Karren! I love how these flowers look 3-D. I usually struggle with stamp sets that have multiple-step stamping as I can never get them aligned just right, but you nailed it. These pretty blooms are perfect.
