Tiny Bouquet

My closest DT neighbour is our hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Check out Narelle's wonderful sketch:

Due to a smudge I needed to cover up, I had to move my elements down the card a bit, but you can still see the sketch.

I have been trying a bit of retail therapy to re-kindle my desire to stamp and got an order from WPlus9 last week.  I stamped the flowers and did some simple Copic coloring before cutting them out with my Scan N Cut.  The background was die-cut with a cover die and the strips behind the sentiment are Watercolor Wash patterned paper - to match the flower colors.

A very simple card with a little pop of color.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the design team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Hello and Thanks (WPlus9), Bitty Thanks and Gratitude (MFT)
Ink:  Amalgam, Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It, Watercolor Wash Brights (MFT)
Dies:  Blueprints 8 (MFT), Stitched Ironworks (WPlus9)
Accessories:  Copics, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

I am headed right over to WPlus9 to purchase that background die!

Ha! I love that you covered up the smudge with your placement of your strips! So clever and something I do all the time. Your card, with all it's texture and flowery images is just perfect!
